kde3 to 4 bugs transition policy?

I'd suggest that kde 3.5 bugs stay open.  No one seems to look much at
them anyway, or if they do, don't do much about them.  They can all be
closed when we don't support kde 3.5 anymore (in one go, by the
launchpad guys).

I'd also suggest re-reporting all kde 3 bugs that still apply to kde 4 -
a lot of them will have been solved in other ways, and launchpad is
really not a good place for feature requests anyway - they should be on
bugs.kde.org.  With the wishlists, it would be a good idea to file them
in b.k.o, and mark them as "Won't fix" (ie, won't fix here) and link the
upstream bugs.

I'd like to remind people to actively send bugs upstream, particularly
while we have a fairly new starting point, and rapid upstream
development.  If we get all the kde4 bugs that should be forwarded done,
then we will find it harder to fall behind on our bug tracking.
