Precisely. I packaged kdvi  from KDE 3 kdegrapics as a stopgap to provide 
this capability in Intrepid since no KDE4 package provided it in KDE 4.1.  
It's time has now passed.

I think as people experience KDE 4.2 they will find it a significant 
improvement over KDE 4.1 that we shipped with Intrepid and there is very 
little to miss from KDE3 anymore.
