AOL. People work towards a date: right now we're way too much in tinker-tinker 
mode. It's fun to hack, it's fun to get publicity and we're avoiding all the 
nastiness of actually having people have our software on their computers. But 
for me, as an application hacker, kdelibs is good enough. Isn't most of the 
cleanup work done? At least that's my impression. Let it stabilize, define a 
mechanism to add more functionality later -- so the platform can grow after 
the release without breaking old applications. And Tom's milestones look good 
to me, although I think the day for the first beta (or alpha, I'm not 
particular) should be June 30.

Sometimes I'm thinking that koffice2 will be ready before kde4... My own 
deadline for a presentable Krita 2.0, by the way, is May 5th, because then 
Cyrille and me are going to present it at the Libre Graphics Meeting.
