i won't even argue the basis of your statement, but i will say that regardless 
of what anyone thinks about 4.0 it should not create subsequent paralysis and 
start us down a path of second-guessing and changing from the accepted release

it's not high visibility. it's one odd visual artifact in konsole kpart usage 
when right clicking, and then only when you can see the top of the scroll 
area. it's not great, but it's hardly high visibility or of the sort that will 
"cause us even more grief".

if we delayed for every bug of this magnitude, we'd never release. it seems 
that in all the noise some of us lost the point that the idea is to release 
often with repeated cycles of improvement.

others can crow about how bad that is, but honestly .. they are wrong. so we 
can choose between doing the right thing or doing what the loud mouths of the 
world think is right. note that now even the SJVNs of the world are eating 
their words given the results we're posting.
