I'm glad to know it - it's quite a nice piece of software and I would
regret if it disappear from Debian.

But you can make life somewhat easier for users during transition time.
I've found that only conflicting files in libkipi0 and libikipi6 are icons.
Those icons are looking the same. So, for limited period of time (until
libkipi0 application are ported to KDE4) icons from libkipi0 could be
removed and libkipi0 could depend on libkipi6.
Well, I know it's a little dirty hack, but I believe it could be used
for some time.
