Wrong, if you please. I think reviewing stuff with 15 developers in person 
could suffice. Or do I have a track record on non waiting for your review? 
KAuth is in kdereview since July. You look you have more a problem on timing, 
I followed the policies more than enough. And this is your problem, not mine.

Also, what issue did I not think through? If you looked into the code, you 
would have realized that KAuth lies in a separate namespace, so it's quite 
unlikely to have stuff conflicting with KAuthorized, which has a completely 
different scope and functionality.
