just to be clear for my poor easily-confused little mind ;) you are saying 
that it would better if the KEG releases were NOT released along with KDE? 
and that it would better if KEG releases were staggered between KDE releases?

so something like:

Week 0: KDE x.y.0 released
Week 6: KDE x.y.1 released
Week 16: KEG x.y.0 released
Week 22: KDE x.y.2 released
Week 32: KEG x.y.1 released
Week 38: KDE x.(y+1).0 released
Week 44: KDE x.(y+1).1 released
Week 54: Keg x.(y+1).0 released

note that i've assumed some sort of version number harmony here so that users 
can say "oh, if i have KEG x.y i need at least KDE x.y"... the week 54 
release in the above could just as easily be KEG x.y.3 if there was no dep on 
KDE x.(y+1) ... or perhaps there's some other more sane way of doing the 
version numbering, i'm not release management guru (he says, glancing over at 
coolo, waldo, david and binner ;)
