No it's not unreasonable, as I would feel the same way. However I thought I was 
told recently that KDE 4.1 will include a stable, just as stable as KDE 3.5.9, 
KDE PIM, it will not include the Akonadi framework at that time, that was 
planned for 4.2 I believe. I think if anyone on this list can better respond to 
this, it would be Tom Albers if he is still around this list :)

I believe I was told we would have a stable release with 4.1, just not the full 
featured release that was envisioned utilizing Akonadi.

We should have something with Intrepid for a stable KDE 4 PIM release, at least 
I hope we do.
