There is something closer - a combination of two sources, by the two primary
Debian KDE maintainers:
deb http://people.debian.org/~ccheney/kde-3.1.95/ ./
deb http://people.debian.org/~bab/kde-3.2 ./
You can read more about it at http://wiki.debian.net/?DebianKDE
I believe that the ~bab debs are what will go into unstable (or experimental
if KDE 3.1.5 doesn't move to testing soon enough). The ~ccheney debs are 3.2
final, but don't have all the conflicts: and replaces: sorted out, so you
will need to remove k3b and koffice to use them for now (and you still might
have some conflicts on upgrading).
