> There is plenty of emirical evidence to suggest that SUNW should be reserved for packages created by and supported by SUN.

This is supported by the "Solaris System Administration Guide: Basic
Administration" (see http://docs.sun.com/):

: Key Points for Adding Software Packages (pkgadd)

: Keep the following key points in mind before you install or remove packages
: on your system:

:   * Package naming conventions - Sun packages always begin with the prefix
:     SUNW, as in SUNWaccr, SUNWadmap, and SUNWcsu. Third-party packages
:     usually begin with a prefix that corresponds to the company's stock
:     symbol.
:   * ..

But lets not forget over this side discussion, that the KDE for Solaris
stuff is just wonderful.  Thank you very much, Stefan!
