I had updated the poster package to use the KDE version for some time,
but it was very buggy (and they had moved it to some orphanned
subdirectory at some point as I rec all).  I eventually reverted to the
original version.  If you do create a poster-kdeprint package, i suggest
you look up the old bugs against poster and make sure that it handles
them correctly.  If it does, I would mind killing off the poster
package since I don't use it.
