Want to go back to KDE 3.2

Really, KDE 3.3 has some annoyances that I want to get rid of. Is there any way to install KDE 3.2 again via pacman? And if I do, will I get some incompatibility? Thanks.

Well!  No, you can't say 'pacman! get me version such-and-such back on here!'.  It's not supported, and the idea of such a feature seems like it doesn't sit to well with the devs.  However, if you have the old packages in your cache, you can manually run pacman --add whatever.pkg.tar.gz all of them, or you could do the same if you found the pkgs on a mirror that hasn't been updated recently.  If you choose to do so, however, apps compiled against 3.3 may not work properly, or at all.  You have been warned.

You know, that's really strange... cause http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?p=31398#31398 seems to say the opposite... and look and that..  both Judd and I said it!

I guess I missed that with people yelling and bickering about Gentoo and Debian everytime it's brought up.  That's also pretty old, and, if I'm not mistaken (again, it happens quite a bit), some more recent discussions on the topic didn't go anywhere meaningful at all.

I'm just curious about what those annoyances are... I haven't seen much differences that would become annoying to be honest...

I'm not sure why anyone would want to go back to 3.2...
