If kde3 _is_ packaged to go for instance in /opt/kde3 it's okay, but if no
kde3 packages exist at all, it's IMHO a great disadvantage, since getting
kde3 from cvs is quite time consuming and thus no kde3 packages drastically
limit the number of people who are able to try and test it, which is a good
(The above of course only applies to unstable and testing)
