Installing KDE3 from unstable onto sarge

I'm struggling with this and nothing I've read has yet to lead me to
success.  I hope someone can help me out, I'd really like to have KDE3
without moving off of sarge.

My apt outputs:

root # apt-get -t unstable install kde-core
Reading Package Lists... Done
Building Dependency Tree... Done
Some packages could not be installed. This may mean that you have
requested an impossible situation or if you are using the unstable
distribution that some required packages have not yet been created
or been moved out of Incoming.

Since you only requested a single operation it is extremely likely
the package is simply not installable and a bug report against
that package should be filed.
The following information may help to resolve the situation:

Sorry, but the following packages have unmet dependencies:
  kde-core: Depends: kdebase but it is not going to be installed
E: Sorry, broken packages

root # apt-cache policy kdebase
