This still applies, I believe.

glibc 2.3.5, X.org, and gnome 2.10 are in, but we still have to finish the gmp 
transition -- which more and more things get dependent on every day -- and 
the KDE transition, and the rest of the C++ ABI transition.

In particular, this would tie kword to the libgsf transition, making it even 
more painful to get KDE into testing.  So please don't do this until 
C++-transitioned KDE makes it into etch.
