There's a Big KDE Change in Debian, lately.  I had been pulling KDE 3.4.1
from the Testing packages maintained at alioth.debian.org.  Well, I guess
a newer 3.4.x is going to be in Testing soon, and made the mistake of
_agreeing_ to a number of upgrades that warned me things would get removed.

So, things are working well now, but I've lost, e.g., amaroK.  D'oh!

I think the thing folks like you and I need to do are be patient and NOT
run upgrades when it's obvious a number of packages will be removed. :^)
