I would argue that you have absolutely no need to be using sid (which doesn't
mean you shouldn't, just that it's not necessary).  I have been known to
download the odd thing from sid, but sarge does the job with the simple addition

    deb http://download.kde.org/stable/3.1/Debian/ stable main

to your sources.
