1) dapper sources already adjuested
2) less load on riddell's servers, better support- official, stuff like

- means they have nice things easily.
Riddell and I have been working on this for about a week now :D
lol - oh - and correction: things wont need to be re-backported just the
KDE 3.5.1 packages that arent base (kde-games etc)
