Stuff's getting built for s390; since s390 is a *very* fast architecture, it 
will catch up quickly.

Look at the bugs which are applicable to packages in sarge (an awful lot of 
packages are getting removed from sarge): http://bts.turmzimmer.net/list.html
That's 303.  Of those, a large number are:
* already patched
* glibc or linux-kernel-headers issues (doing well, as I mentioned)
* latex2html moved to non-free (straightfoward to fix)
* unmaintained packages which are probably going to be dropped
* long-standing X-Windows issues which are probably going to be ignored

Sarge is closer than you might think.  :-/

Don't do it.  :-(  That's a *very* bad idea.  If it takes even half as long to 
get 3.2 into sid in good shape as it has taken to get 3.1.4 in, you'll NEVER 
make sarge, no matter when sarge releases.

Please, please don't do it.  If you want to upload KDE 3.2 to "experimental" 
and see how it goes.  But DON'T upload it to sid until you have 3.1.4 in 
sarge and working.  Parts of KDE are still at version 2 in sarge, and 
uploading KDE 3.2 to sid will just make it impossible to ever get KDE 3 into
