Thanks for your prompt reply Paul.  :)

I don't mean this disrespectfully.  I am already aware of what you have
said.  The reason I included the bracketed section which you included in
your reply was to inform potential repliers of what I had in mind in
regarding "safe" - in a definitional way.

If you know if the debs currently on the mirrors should provide a
working, or broken, KDE upgrade [especially from the system I indicated I
have], I'd be interested in knowing.

Thanks.  :)
