No, we don't want KDE 3.2.0 until we *know* it can be autobuilt. Uploading
it to experimental and asking developers to build it on various
architectures tells us that to a good approximation, and allows us to keep
working on KDE 3.1.5 in the meantime.

Indeed, that's why you don't just have it in experimental for one arch.

Indeed, but that's precisely why we have experimental available.
