Thanks.  That makes sense, and speaks well enough to the problem.

As for going over it 100 times already, unfortunately, the kde site 
doesn't have (that I could find) a clear and definitive statement on 
continuing kde 3 support, and without such a statement, what's apparently 
come up 100 times is likely to come up 100 more...

Also, as someone who actually went thru the archives for both this list 
and the kde-linux list before my first post, I can say that if it the 
subject /has/ been covered on these lists, it's apparently buried in a 
thread about something else.  There's no definitive thread (that I could 
find) like this one, yet.  Now that there IS one, clear in the title, in 
the archives for people to read, maybe that'll help -- at least the ones 
like me who actually read a great deal before they post.

So now it's out there.
