I am not new to Linux, only to debian; I used gentoo before, then ubuntu
which I found intolerable because of the tendency to unnecessarily dumb
down everything and hide information from the user; and because the
support for kde seemed rather inconsistent. My debian installation is
the latest stable.
I have got as far as:
aptitude -t experimental install kde4
which runs for a while, and then comes out with a seemingly endless
No solution found within the allotted time. Try harder? [Y/n]
- but no word about what is the problem. Shall I just keep pressing
return and comtinue? I abandoned it after about 20 or 30 repetitions.
So what should I do, if I actually want to run kde4? Abandon debian?
That would be a shame, it seems to one of the few worthwhile

Don't use experimental, it usually depends on stuff in sid. Use the kde4
backports from http://kde4.debian.net/
