We could keep rolling updates in the experimental section of the PPA 
reorganization, but in general I'd like to get that update to jaunty-updates 
itself in order to get the greatest rate of distribution amongst the users.

A rolling update in experimental might actually help upstream track issues 
down without having to ask users to install the plasmoid from SVN. Though, 
someone would need to maintain that ;-)
