The attached patch updates the task to KDE 4. It relies in the new metapackage
kde-standard that still needs to be updated . The metapackage will need an
update in a couple of months or so when KDE 4 is more "settled" in Debian and
to review what to do with libqt-perl, debconf kde frontend, and kpackage.
