The point here is that I don't think the problem here is the Dependency Freeze 
but the Feature Freeze.

Ok, this is not a "new" feature, but introduces (i guess) a reasonable chunk 
of new code to implement the same feature. To me that still seems like a new 
feature, so could you guys comment on the impact of "what if the new code we 
are adding is really bad". Would KGet crash like crazy all the time or one 
would just lose the nepomuk features?
