I'm really getting tired of this.

I had to force the versions as too many people had too many different
versions of packages based on different versions of kdelibs.  kdelibs has
kept changing way too much until recently.  I had to cut down on the
number of bug reports I was getting and verify that the packages worked or
didn't work.  

I can't just let them depend on kdelibs...if I did, that would defeat the
purpose of what I was testing.  the SSL support has been ultra-unstable 
lately and therefore I chose to make the non-ssl versions the one to force
people to use.

Now that this has been done and everyone is forced into using specific 
versions then I can upload the split packages the way they need to be.
(this also thanks to KDE finally getting to a stable point to allow this).
Sitting in incoming is all the stuff...and has been since just slightly
after this stupid thread started.
