Are you suggesting I remove all of kde, get the source for whatever is
packaged in kdelibs4, compile it (making sure somehow not to depend
on libcupsys2) then reinstall kde (somehow making sure it doesn't
replace my kdelibs? Is that do-able by someone who has never
successfully compiled anything? It's a handful of work for the three
or four apps I use from kde.

That seemed like a good idea. I removed cupsys and friends (via
aptitude). Then tried to install them. Nothing happened. Aptitude
claimed 0 packages to be installed. I tried apt-get install cupsys.
Apt-get wanted libcupsimage2, libcupsys2-gnutls10, and gs-esp in
order to install cupsys. Then it listed 229 packages to remove -
comprising all of kde, so I stopped. This is similar to what I saw
in aptitude: a cascade of dependencies on libcupsys2 which starts
with kdelibs4. AFAICS that implies that kde is currently
incompatible with cups printing in sid.
