They did not remove any offending packages. There is simply no offending 
packages. What is in KDE:KDE3 is the same as what was in OpenSUSE when it 
included KDE3 (11.0). And it always was maintained in KDE:KDE3, just the most
stable packages were included in the official repo.

Do you use Dolpin instead of Konq as some people say?

On the other hand we made many patches. Recently we fixed handling encrypted
rar archives and Yahoo login, today we ported Qt3 to libpng4 etc.
