Whether he's in this discussion or not, a personal attack is a flame, so not 
really relevant.

The reason I haven't been suggesting /usr/kde3 is it definitely would be 
against FHS. However I agree it would be better than /opt/kde3, especially if 
we take note of Mark Brown's argument (from Re: Interpreting FHS):

I assume by this we mean people who have /usr on a seperate partition, which 
is an argument for using /usr/kde3, but that means getting FHS changed.. hmm, 
possible but difficult ;)
