Sorry, forgot to say, on amd64, TDE, from stable has compiled (after 
sorting minor issues) and apart from the kicker crash is fine, or at 
least appears so for now. As for armel issues, from a user point of view 
I have never used a desktop environment on an ARM linux system but I 
would love to see see TDE on ARM.
