indeed; however, it is not the only perspective and i'm trying to help provide 
some other perspectives as well. combined, we may make better decisions.

are you seriously suggesting that KDE without kmail and kate constitutes a 
desktop "without any useful apps"? there's a balance point somewhere in here. 
and as i said in my first email, i thought we'd already achieved consensus 
that said "running kde3 kdepim apps is fine for 4.0, with the goal of having 
kde4 pim apps ready for prime time in 4.1"? so i'm seeing a slippage here in 
our consensus that seems to be endangering our ability to release in a 
suitable time frame.

(though i was just using kate this morning to see how good it is and it seems 
to not be seriously broken atm? =)

p.s. i'm on this mailing list, no need to cc me =)
