I just did the upload to unstable, with the karchive fix from upstream and an 
modified version of that one for kde4libs. The second one needs some test, 
sadly adding the (binary) test file used in karchive is a bit of a burden.

After these packages are available we would need to backport the change to 
stable. Right now, I can't promise that I would have the time to take care of 
this. So volunteers for taking care of this are welcome.

If needed, I'm willing to help anyone working on this.
