Is there a way to get a kde3 color scheme into kde4?

It appears that you missed the point of my previous posting and/or
simply do not understand what I am talking about. This is not about the
fact that KDE4 has more color roles. If KDE4 had taken the schema for
the KDE3 color schemes and _only_ added additional color roles (making
KDE3 color schemes a proper subset of KDE4 color schemes), they we would
have backward compatibility and we could have still moved forward. That
is what backward compatibility is about -- moving forward in an orderly
way by making the new a proper superset of the old.
