After some experimentation we now use sudo-trinity instead of
sudo, but desktop-base instead of desktop-base-trinity.
In order to do this we remove both the desktop-base-trinity
and kde-trinity packages, but we install most or all of their

Some people (including us) have a problem with kdm-trinity,
so we use kdm from KDE 4, which unfortunately brings in some
extra KDE 4 libraries. We use phonon-backend-null here to avoid
KDE 4 sound drivers.
FWIW, I've appended our trinity seed package list. We install
all of these "--no-recommends" except amarok-trinity. Also if
you want a working ktorrent find an old copy of ktorrent2.2 as
it is still by far the best.
Trinity is well worth the effort. Our test users love it and
it's improving far faster than KDE 4 (which as of our our last
test a couple of weeks ago STILL can't install a working KMail).
KDE 3.5: 9/10
KDE 4.4: 2/10
