By the way do you know when people are going to stop breaking KDE? Just
today or yesterday(?) Graham Wilson uploaded a new libxslt1 that broke
around 47 packages including kdelibs, koffice, kopete, and various gnome
and xml libs...

Pretty much every time I upload new KDE debs someone yanks libs out from
under it, I have ranted about this before on debian-devel in the past and
the general consensus was this is a good thing...

Yea, I'll believe sarge is close to release when I see it.
