Well, it does for me! At least, it upgrades well from kde 3.2.0 to kde 3.2.1,

Ok, I'd remake my question. If today's preferred method of installing and 
upgrading software in debian is apt-get, and it has some problems, why is 
this the first time I heard of it? I mean, from a user perspective, one that 
reads many debian related mailing lists, apt-get is the most recommended 
tool, not aptitude. 

Anyway, how do the debian kde guys make it to do it almost painless? Could it 
be done the same way?

Just being curious, not wanting to start a flame about this! :)
