Re: Any hope of KDE 3.5 in F10?

Careful there, KDE is explicitly excluded from LTS in Hardy (but the EOL date 
you quote is probably correct, the regular support time is 1.5 years). Their 
rationale: KDE 3 is too old for LTS, KDE 4 is too new. And they're planning to 
move to KDE 4 only in Intrepid (i.e. Hardy+1, about the time F10 releases).

That's pretty much the ONLY option if you want to keep 3.5 that long, and be 
aware that Debian does NOT fix any bugs in stable, with the exception of 
security bugs and sometimes some big showstoppers (but even that isn't 
guaranteed, only security fixes are). Basically, you get things as they are at 
the moment of the Lenny release, with only security fixes.
