It is my understanding that the ppa version is the "most recent" so that 
supersedes the normal repro's version.  For example, if you have the backports 
repro enabled your machine will not install a 4.1 version of a package but the 
4.2 version.  It's the same thing.  Once you install the new KDE packages you 
will only get updates for them, not the old versions.

You will want to disable the ppa repro at sometime in the future when 4.2.3 
hits the normal repros.  That is what I was trying to say in the last post, I 
just did not have enough coffee yet :)
