[kde-linux] KDE3 Apps to KDE4?

I would love to graduate from KDE3, free up some space!

What might I still use from KDE3?

Ksensors -- there is a plasma data-engine available for making a plasmoid to 
replace this but has a zillion items in it! Could set up a stupid/simpler one 
by parsing the output of the sensors command line.

Guarddog -- this is an understandable firewall builder for iptables.

Recoll-applet -- I am not using this applet now but something like this is 
needed for us diehards that are resisting nepomuk (all those daemons bog down 
kde4). A plasmoid and a runner simply running recoll and parsing its stdout 
like the qalculate applets and runners do with qalc? Should not be overly 
difficult--might try to do them using the qalc ones as templates?

Kdevelop -- a premiere app!! When, o when? Been using netbeans for C++ as well 
as Java (can do ruby and php as well).

Rosegarden -- one of the more mature Linux sound apps but tied to kde3 and 
will not work, at least by me, in kde4. WIP "thorn" will be qt4, no kde4 deps.

Kisa -- cute live spell checker/search interface. Was ported but with all the 
bugs intact. No new version for a while now.

KDE interfaces for boinc (works in KDE4) and flightgear (works, but out-of-
sync with current fgfs).
