Thinking about this some more, I wonder if we can take ownership of the
old KDE3 plugin and just rename it/patch it upstream.  That would probably
be easiest and produce a minimal amount of work for both us and

The downside, of course, is that KDE3 support for versions <= 3.5.10 would
be removed.  I will dig around in the build system a bit as I have time
and see what can be done.
