Just to point out another, non-official source:

Ralf Nolan had back-ported KDE3 to Woody as part of a work project. This
was later move to KDE's own web site, where is is now updated to include
KDE-3.1.2 for Woody. So, it is possible to run KDE-3.1.2 on a Woody system
without the usual problems of trying to mix stable and unstable libs. This
also gets around the problems of different versions of GCC being used to
compile the different libs.

I don't have the actual source site as I'm at work, but I have used it to
update my woody system so I know it works.
