I don't disagree with what you have said, however it isn't me that you need to
convince, hey I'm even part of the kde-extras team.
The filtered debdiff is quite small as you say, however we are very deep into
the the lenny freeze so the standard policy answer to bump minor versions of a
lib would be no. Of course the risk of bumping a minor version of a important
library does go up. Also every other package in lenny also has a minor version
increment they will want to get included, but the point of a freeze is to stop
IMHO - what the kde team would need to show to debian-release is that there
are substantial benefits and low risk in including 3.5.10 at this late stage.
But then again you are not suggesting an integrated 3.5.10 be included rather
just one set of libs from 3.5.10 and the rest of kde stays at 3.5.9. Which
again presents a level of risk.
I will await further discussion on d-r, however again IMHO I don't think the
present argument is strong.
Which brings us back to my first option:

I would recommend the preparation of -7 with 63_fixed-layout-table.diff now.
