Take it as it is, but KDE 3.5 _is_ a step child and we can continue this
"we need a KDE 3.X (where X is larger than the previous released)" discussion 
for years now. It just won't help us. We started with KDE 4 development - 
given fact. This means KDE 3.5 sees less development than any other KDE3
release - given fact. Now we have to make sure to find the balance between
a) getting KDE 3.5 out at all and b) getting KDE 4 out in an overseeable 

I posted this as request for comments because I knew it is pretty 
controversial, but past showed me that people don't jump on such suggestions 
when they are two months away[1]. I'm very happy that we have a fruitful
discussion going on now and I'm sure we will find a compromise that works
for all of us.
