Farewell Pairs

Pairs is a KDE4 application, and I thought would also kept in all the
Kubuntu releases that also support KDE4.
If it doesn't make any problem (and I think is not) would be really cool to
have the last Long Term support (16.04) with KDE4 and Pairs.
I could still intall that on the Kindergarten project (since the kid
already know the game) and gradually introduce GCompris.
Is that feasable or is it a big problem?

Life is short, so learn from your mistakes
And stand behind, the choices that you make

Face each day with both eyes open wide
And try to give don't keep it all inside
