Until now I've only heard talk about the reverse search, and that was the 
reason for bringing kdvi back in Intrepid. You might be right that forward 
search doesn't work in Okular; then that is indeed a valid request, that we 
need to take upstream if it is not already there.

It is not possible to re-add kdvi at this point. But I've just tested, and 
installing the kdvi package from intrepid works fine in jaunty; so that is a 
possible solution for now.
