didn't you hear? if we hit our deadline we all get a 10% scheduling bonus on 
our pay! oh .. wait a minute. ;)

seriously though, i completely agree with this. putting our trust in 
downstreams (both individuals as well as distros of various sizes) to do the 
right thing when we have knowledge that we can with them to ensure they do the 
right thing would be downright silly. we could think of it in terms of 
protecting the value of KDE or doing best by our users or ensuring we don't 
get screwed by people who don't know or wish not to. any way one wishes to 
look at it, making sure such crashes due to upstream dependencies don't make 
it out into the wild makes all the sense in the world.
