Thank you debian maintainers for trying to completely remove all the hard
work Ivan has donated to try to keep KDE as up-to-date as possible.

I secend the vote for Ivan's great work and proper logic, especially
considering this also causes problems in Gnome I.E.:

By the way, "imlib1" is in the same boat as libqt2: I recompiled
imlib using libpng3 and loads of GNOME binaries started failing to
load icons.  So this issue affects all of GNOME as well as KDE.

Therefore, this is not Ivan's fault, as some debian maintainers seem to be


     I for one support you and your efforts, and I'm sure I'm not the only
one who feels this way. Keep up the great work!
