I want to revise my revised proposal.  :)

I think we should add a small list of minimum requirements that
must be met before we go into the Release Candidate cycle.
One such list might be:
 - a functional workspace (i.e. Plasma)
 - oxygen style working
 - konqueror working
 - dolphin working
 - sound working
 - kmail working
 - kate working

"working" doesn't mean "bug free"; it means no known "grave bugs".
"working" means using it doesn't make you want throw your computer out the window.

This might mean 6 Betas.  Who knows?
Having a minimum requirements list will help us concentrate on the areas
that really need attention.  For example, KMail is hurting because KSSL needs work.
