actually, why doesn't Debian go the /opt/kde3 or /usr/kde3 way, like other
distributions? E.g. SuSE has had absolutely no problems providing KDE3 beta
RPMs for all users which don't interfere with the KDE2 setup at all,
because they use /opt/kde{2,3} and ~/.kde2, ~/.kde3 subdirs etc..

The only argument from Debian people I've heard so far is that it is

KDE is no longer 'too small for an extra directory', the packages eat much
much more space than e.g. /usr/games or even /usr/X11.
