You do not need to keep any package around, user X installs KDE 4.2 realizes that does not like it, user can: - install kde 3.5 from testing (yes, for limited time this one) - install kde 3.5 from local apt cache or copy made on purpose. - build his/her own kde 3.5 packages fetching debian/ from our repo (branches/lenny( - go to snapshots.debian.net and fetches a copy from there. And of course, never ever update kde... -- http://lists.alioth.debian.org/mailman/listinfo/pkg-kde-talk
