Just, for the record, some talking done in IRC.

kdelibs 3.5.10 can not migrate because it has been caught by pcre3. 

I, personally, do not consider the bug #502459 serious but important.  
Still, this upload fixes several important (and annoying bugs, see 
changelog), which all together make it worth updating this for Lenny.

Backport the changes does not make too much sense, because then basically
we would be shipping 3.5.10 with a bunch of patches that makes the packaging
somehow less "clean", and only missing the changes that does s/3.5.9/3.5.10/,
specially when Lenny users already are using a set of packages that is more 
KDE 3.5.10 than KDE 3.5.9.

I would have never uploaded 3.5.10 to unstable if I would not consider it
suitable for going to lenny. I was aware of the pcre3 problem, but before 
pushing this into testing (via t-p-u), I thought it was a good idea getting 
some testing in unstable.
I think after 2-3 more days in unstable, the best choice here is (re)build 
and (re)upload to t-p-u. (*)
(*) I am the person who has been doing most of the KDE 3 stuff in the last
months, but I can not do Debian stuff currently. So Sune Vuorela has kindly
agreed to upload this to t-p-u.

Have fun,
