 As others have already said, it'll be an even longer way off if we do 3.6. I 
for one haven't almost touched KDE4 besides forwardporting my KDE3 code, and 
there are others who haven't done even that.

 However, on the other hand, let's say I have here few KDE patches that 
together with the font performance fixes make KDE startup take roughly the 
same amount of time like Xfce and leave GNOME a bit behind. They'll be in 
trunk soon, but I have this feeling some people might like to use them sooner 
than in a year even without using SUSE packages. And I wouldn't mind getting 
more testing for them or seeing such patches from other people. What should I 
do with them?
