The {3,5} ones are kde3 based libraries where the 7 is the kde4 based edition.

At the time of packaging, it was unclear (and I'm still not fully sure) when 
everything will be ready and moved to kde the kde4 versions.

I'm not sure there is much gain in keeping libkexiv2-dev, except for pure 
aestethical reasons.  There should be no way to move from -{3,5} to -7 without 
major source changes.

Man, how to mount a tool?

First from Flash and from the drawer within ICQ NT you have to save a kernel 
to the editor of the PCI periferic to the LCD TCP button over a POP3mail 
application for booting with the parallel bus.
