Sorry, I cannot follow this argumentation. In the office I need Exchange
integration and all I can hope is, that it is ready for KDE 4.5. Unless
this time, I have to stick with KDE3. 

However, with you removing all those apps, you also remove quite some that I
use and need also. If you do not move them to the KDE3 overlay, my KDE3
setup is quite similar useless as KDE4 and the KDE3 overlay is simply a
farce. If I use KDE3 only, I do *not* have KDE4 on my machine i.e. those
apps *will* build without problems. You would have better add some build
dependency with <kdelibs-4 to effectively block those ebuilds when KDE4 is
installed.

Please reconsider these actions.

- Jörg
