Yes, I agree :( I still hope that at the end 0.12 is choosen as the less
risky route (I'm naive I know), but as it is we, better work in experimental.

	o please upload what 0.12 pkg you have on disk ASAP to experimental
	o you're welcome in pkg-kde-extras group in case you like to idea.

  To me vi is Zen.  To use vi is to practice zen. Every command is
  a koan. Profound to the user, unintelligible to the uninitiated.
  You discover truth everytime you use it.
