I don't think we have apps in KDE PIM which are in such a bad state that they 
shouldn't be part of the release. But apps which work on critical data don't 
get that much test coverage as users are more cautious and don't expose their 
real data to non-stable versions. So having old and new versions available in 
parallel would give users a choice and offer a softer migration path.

That said, of course we should get all apps as stable as possible. I'm just 
not sure we can actually reach a quality level which is as high as we want it 
to be, especially for KMail given that there aren't much people which are 
courageous enough to work on it (or even use it).
