Why would the upgrade of zypper have to do anything to kde3? It is a text
mode application.

Hi, it is quite simple. Answer is dependencies. After each update system still
must working.
You want update zypper -> require new libzypp -> I think that old yast
bindings doesn't work with old libzypp due to ABI changes -> update yast ->
new yast require new qt-bindings -> update qt -> and this leads to get remove
kde3, because you don't have qt3 after this step ( I think it is related also
to renaming of packages from name(name4 for kde4) to name3(name for kde4). so
it naturally update to kde4 version your kde3 packages.
