Welcome to experimental ;-)

The explanation is quite simple: when ktorrent 4.3.1-1 was uploaded to 
experimental it wascompiled against libkworkspace4abi1, which was possibly the 
version in unstable at that time.

Later KDE was updated and so came libkworkspace4abi2. Of course ktorrent from 
experimental becomes uninstallable, but as it is a version from experimental, 
this is expected and not considered a bug.

All you can do is wait until the maintainer decides to push ktorrent 4.3.1 or 
any later version to unstable.

I would normally close this non-bug (Debian does not warrants instalability of 
experimental packages), but I'll let Modestas decide (or close it in a couple 
of weeks if necessary)

psicólogos, que los políticos y funcionarios de sus comunidades. Eso afectó la
autoridad que tenía un adulto para habilitar al mundo.
