I just want to show I have done what was written in the mail on 
debian-devel-announce, and it doesn't work. The real problem is that all 
KDE package build-depends on kdelibs-dev which is not installable.

In fact, the thing to do is to wait for KDE 3. I only hope there will no
bug reports on a KDE package, since bugs can't be fixed at least on other
architectures than the uploader one.

BTW, is it possible to add the tag "can't fix" to the BTS meaning the
maintainer know how to fix the bug, but can't for various reason
(transition, need a new version of a library not yet uploaded, ...).
It's not the first time this tag could be useful...
