Ok that's certainly problem how to avoid a selection bias. Hm hm how about a 
less advanced preference feedback for the average user that is pretty much 
similar to the hardware feedback?

A tool that enables users uploading (parts of) their configuration to a 
central server where you can collect an analyse it? This would leave out the 
possibility of user to user influence (aka community) but would at least give 
you some better hints for creating default settings of the next release.

(Anyways a tool that can create .debs from parts of ./kde would be still nice, 
e.g. for easier transfering just configs from one desktop to another or 
creating more easier a customized system e.g. in a company).
