[paludis-user] KDE 4.2.0

KDE 4.2.0 is released, packages are entering the tree as I write this post.

I'm currently using meta packages to bring in everything I want. The
Gentoo kde maintainers will not be creating meta packages for 4.2 [i]
and have switched to portage package sets. I've also read that the
portage implementation of sets wont be supported by paludis [ii] for
very sound reasons. Now, there used to be an overlay for kde at [iii]
which supported paludis, however it also seems to be missing meta
packages and also seems to only have svn packages.

So my question is... How do I install KDE 4.2.0? Do I have to use the
monolithic ebuilds or is there another solution (like an overlay
somewhere with portage-style sets)?
