I don't think it is  a good idea to continue to call Kde 3.5x kdemod3.
While it is named that for historical reasons, it would be best to
just scratch it and use Trinity instead. Trinity is not the crappy old
3.5.10 its better. using kdemod3 just reminds me of old crap. starting
fresh I think is vital.

For now having kait's Trinity arch mirror is good for now, at least
until the 3.5.13 release. Ideally I think it would be best to host the
packages on our server, but that doesn't have to be the case.

Another important thing I am thinking of just as I type is this: All
PKGBUILDs should be online, available in the Trinity SVN repository.
It will keep us united, orginised and effective.
