well, here are some more impressions:

-	kdepim is still not fully mature: distribution lists do not work (groups can 
be created nicely, but impossible to send mail to a group, deleting emails 
from my standard email account triggers arcane error messages from gmail ...)
-	searching in emails is nice, works 'as you type' due to nepomuk

as for Tim's thoughts about abandoning tde applications in favour of KDE4 
apps, I think, this is not really an option ATM, as this would immediately 
pull in nearly the whole KDE4 stack just for calligra, e.g..
maybe this will become feasible with qt5/kde5, which will allow for much more 
selective dependencies than currently.
so, my vote is clearly for keeping existing (fully functional, maybe 
feature-less) kde 3.5 applications alive and just abandon buggy cruft like 
that will keep trinity as what it is today: the only lightweight, complete and 
consistent desktop, which runs flawless also on outdated hardware.
(other WMs like razor-qt, E17.. are no real alternative, as they all lack a 
set of native applications)
