Thanks, Laurent. Problem is not in the packaging itself; I want to
have ability to migrate KDE3 users to something better (read:
something that's not dead upstream), either TDE or KDE4. If the
profiles could be easily migrated from KDE3 to TDE (preferrably with
no more changes than ~/.kde => ~/.tde), it's what I'm searching for. I
don't care about binary or ever source compatibility with KDE3, while
all apps needed are ported to TDE. But I care about existing setups. I
need to know, what can/should be done for seamless migrate from
(possibly heavily tweaked) KDE3 profile to TDE.

I also want to make KDE4 packages co-exist with KDE3/TDE ones. I
already got that it is a work-in-progress. Brief looking at the recent
commits gives me impression that it's already moving fast - cool. :)
