Ok, so I am a total KDE svn neophyte... :-) Right now what I have is 
basically a mod of kdelibs-3.5.5/kstyles/plastik/, i.e. I am stealing 
that build system.

So I'm not sure how to proceed. I am thinking maybe:
svn cp branches/KDE/3.5/kdelibs/styles/plastik 
...? (Is playground/base the right place, or maybe playground/artwork 

...and then whatever I have to do to jerry-rig the build system back 
into working?

Or would it be better to ignore the build system and say 'for this to 
work, you have to check it out into an existing kdelibs-3.5*/styles/plastik?
