Just some questions out of interest.

Why isn't it possible to let the Trinity repository contain updated 
versions of those offending packages? When the Trinity versions have a 
higher version number, I would expect they would automatically be used 
over the standard Ubuntu ones.

And does anyone know if it would be possible to take over maintenance 
upstream, either at Debian or with Ubuntu? What is their stance about 
providing the KDE 3 libs based on Trinity sources?
