Yay .. that looks like Andreas Mueller has made good his promise to
post his packages of KDE 3.2.2.  The KDE 3.2.3 directory seems to be
symlinked to the 3.2.2 branch though.

NB: The README says this :
    "The Packages [are] based on XFree4.3, don't 
    upgrade if love your XFree-4.1"
so I guess finally it might be time for me to upgrade my XFree-4.2 ...

Does anyone know how complicated that might be with current packages ?
ISTR that a whole lot of other Debian packages have to be changed to
move to XFree-4.3 ... e.g. font management ?

I'm far from a Linux machine right now, so can't tell what apt-get
might say ..
