krename port to (3.5.13-sru)

  What is the process to prepare krename for 3.5.13-sru?  I have created a diff
that does it, but primarily the only changes are:

tde-config -> kde-config
ltde -> lkde                 # library names
tqDebug -> qDebug
tqt_cast -> qt_cast

  I have done this _without_ changing the automake variable names (i.e.
LIB_TDEUI to LIB_KDEUI), there was no real need to change variable names, but if
cherry picking reverts them, that's fine...

  What is the recipe for converting a package from current GIT to 3.5.13-sru? I
don't know how to search and identify what commits need changing. Do you
normally just look at the commits for a package and just toss out commits until
you get back to the point it builds and then pick new ones you want?  Also, do
you know what the approximate date is that the packages have to be taken back to
in order to get rid of the k->t naming changes -- or is it different for each
package? If it helps, I have attached the diff for taking krename from 14.0.0
back to 3.5.13-sru. That probably provides the needed terms to search commits for.

  If you give me a quick 'recipe' of what to look for and how to logically go
about looking for what actual commits need to be undone, I'll take a shot at
looking them up for krename so I can get familiar with the process. Hope this
