That is probably a good idea <big grin>. Kde-3.2.1 takes a long time to 
build and programming from the cli is similar to calling ed a screen 
editor. I think the upgrade is worth it. It just takes a while to do.

One more thing. After the upgrade from kde-3.1.4 to 3.2.1, most of the 
application buttons were messed up. I finally did an rm -rf .kde* from 
my home directory. Make sure you have your email address book and 
bookmarks saved before you do anything drastic like that.
