What's the problem with a such change? Sure, the amount of work needed
for the whole gcc-3.2 transition would grow a bit. But what will happen
when they upload new, gcc-3.2 based packages with the package names of
existing inofficial packages? I expect lots of users whinning about
temporar breakage. So it would be good to change them anyways. And
looking so, the existing KDE3 packages could also go into Sid _now_.
