What do you refer to by X Terminal enviroment? I use KMail on laptop or 
dedicated workstation. But I don´t know how a Thin Client environment 
should be making much of a difference.

I still suggest to you to try it. Bugs can still be fixed, although some

Please look up the archives. Some Debian Qt/KDE developers provided their 
reasoning for all of this. Unless they changed their mind I think there is 
no need to repeat the explaination. And I´d rather see them spend their 
limited time working on Wheezy and possibly KDEPIM 2 test packages than 
arguing about their decision on this list.
