wrt KDE 3.5.3 ...

we have the question of merging kdelibs-bin into kdelibs4. recent 
discussions on debian-project have shown that some find that libs 
packages should not ship libraries, and we have the damn circular 
dependency bug.

I'd be in favour of a merge, because the real reason behind the "do not 
merge" argument is a problem wrt multiarch, and I'm not sure KDE can 
work in a multiarch env sanely anyway (I doubt kdelibs4/i386 + 
kdelibs4/amd64 + kdelibs-bin/amd64 e.g. can work).

my opinion is that we should go for the merge, because it's unlikely 
that multiarch will happen for etch (or it will only be partial) and 
that it at least solves upgrade problems, even at the cost of a policy 
violation, but that the RM won't enforce.

what do others here think ?
