Ouch.  Seriously, this coming from someone on the kde release-team 
speaks volumes.  Something is seriously broken here.  methodologies? 

OK, I think I'm starting to see... (thinking out loud) there's a 
difference between kde 4 the development platform and kde 4 the 
desktop.  At this point, looks like the former is getting the most 
attention (from the release-team's perspective anyway).

Am I getting warm?

If so, would there be any merit or consideration to position kde 4.0 
like that, only (or primarily) as a development platform?
How far to take it?  Release only some parts/modules as part of the kde 
4.0?  The rest could come later as part of the kde4 "desktop", and 
kde-promo's ideas around release parties, etc..
