My concern is that upstream will consider the wishlist bugs fixed if
they are fixed in KDE4, so rejecting them in lp and refiling on b.k.o
is effectively the same thing I was suggesting, but creates more work
for both us and upstream compared to us seeing that they are fixed in
KDE4 and just closing them.
Bugs that are not fixed in KDE 4.0 of course should be filed upstream
where applicable.

Already 100 bugs searching for kde4 [1]
Sounds good for a hug day.
