So where's the choice for kde3? Not there afaict. Neither does a package 
search locate anything. I thought it was obvious we were discussing kde 
variants, not completely different desktops.

So I'm asking for baby steps for that process. I don't want to read 
something into that brief description and mess up a critical work
