Kevin,  you have brought up your points and made your position very clear on 
this and related topics in your 15 mails or so in the last month.
The result of you bringing them up has been that people thought more about the 
proper way to do it, but one point has been made clear.  The direction of 
modularization will continue and is supported by a lot of people.

A sentence like this, that implies an accusation but doesn't straight out say 
so is not helpful.  Its close to being disrespectful.
If you want to have an influence in KDE, in its direction and its quality and 
if you want to enjoy feeling part of a community as wonderful as KDE, this 
kind of talking is not very helpful.

Please be part of KDE, in a positive way.  :-)
