Yes, why don't we tweak upstream so that an unsupported older version
can run alongside.

Nothing against kde3, but if you want to use older versions, you're
responsible to solve the incompatibilities (which you're trying to do)
and perhaps maintain your own patches for whatever is needed. I do not
see a need to change Arch's 'official' packaging for this.
