Actually the last KDE 3 (3.5.10) was for 12.2, and I have been carrying forward that version for quite some time. I think that missing hal will be the stumbling block for running that version for 14.0.
At the moment I run Trinity 3.5.13 on Current (which at the moment is identical to 14.0). There are some glitches, but nothing fatal.

What we usually say is: do not mix. Of course, stuff like xlander hasn't been recompiled recently and yet it works well. But for packages that have changed, don't attempt to take one from version X of the distribution and use it on version Y. Don't attempt to do backports.
