This doesn't really make sense to me. KDE 4 development never broke the
existing KDE 3.5 in any way. (It's also silly to say that the KDE
developers prevented people from enjoying KDE 3.5 after KDE 4 was
released.) If there would be a stable version of kwin4 working well with
Trinity in the future, it will always be possible to stick with that
version if newer versions would turn out to be problematic.

I see no problems in using an upstream project here at all.
