OK. I think when speaking in the context of a distro (i.e. on a Kubuntu list)
we really need to keep the entire system in mind when answering such
questions. KDE 4.1 is released and mature enough for the end user, but
there's a lot of packaging work to be done so the KDE 4.1 you can install now
probably isn't is a distinction without a difference for the Kubuntu end
