These packages are krita and kuickshow. And the packages koffice and
kdegraphics that they're part of, are actually meta-packages. You can
safely install all subpackages in it, omitting krita and kuickshow,
and you'll have a working kde3.
On one machine, I had to symlink /usr/local/share/applnk to
/usr/share/applnk before it would correctly display koffice icons,
and before QT3 Designer would work, I had to follow #182189.
Apart from that, I think it works fine.
