The hesitation is that none of those are official Ubuntu repositories.  The
kubuntu one _should_ be OK, but the others are likely intended for Debian,
not Ubuntu.  Breezy was not released with KDE 3.5 - the kubuntu.org
packages are backports. I'm certain there will be _something_ there that's
pretty reliable, but I'm _not_ certain that's the correct URL.  I used
kubuntu.org briefly before deciding to go with dapper, specifically because
the correct URL for the latest breezy KDE packages kept changing.

I'd _definitely_ be scared about using sourceforge to get apt - you want to
be using the version of apt that's intended for your version of Ubuntu, or
you may well end up with a completely non-updatable system.  I don't know
about plf, and opera is probably safe as long as it will install - but I'd
want to get my system working stably before I'd try to install it.
