With the Squeeze release probably a few weeks away, and thousands of
Debian users likely to be looking for a way out of KDE4, is there any
chance of removing the conflicts that prevent a smooth Trinity install?

The main problems seem to be desktop-base-trinity (which conflicts with
desktop-base and therefore with gnome-core and kdm and much more) and
sudo-trinity (which conflicts at the file level with sudo and scares
people - why does a desktop want to replace a key piece of my security

I haven't yet been able to figure out the reason for requiring trinitized
versions of these packages.
