Thanks much for the info.  I was not aware about the minimal patching. 
Good to know.

In another part of their site, though, they mention that they're 
planning to focus on KDE4 going forward, and though they want to support 
KDE3 going forward, they're looking for someone else take that on.  So I 
wasn't sure if this is something that was likely to happen.  I think 
I'll get in touch with them about this, though, and see if maybe we can 
join forces.

Thanks again,
