kde4.0 and kdepim-3.5.7_(whatever it is kubuntu is currently using) works fine 
on my machine, although I had to uninstall kwallet-3.5.8 so it would call 
kwallet 4.0.

While there are a few difficluties I'm working on, like cxoffice menu's still 
unable to make them appear in kde4's menus? and MyPasswordSafe segfaulting, 
and knetworkmanager not autostarting...
