IMHO kubuntu should ship the patch if they want to provide it. We should not start to backport features, because distributions ask for it. For other distributions this might be a severe issue as they have strict bug fix only policies. They need to be able to trust us. This was especially important to Kubuntu in the past as they did not ship bugfixes because they feared it might include features. It took us years to build up that trust. So let's not jeopardize it.
