I'm for reverting to Dragon. The intention was to use kaffeine in the hopes 
that it would reach a stable quality by the time we entered beta. It seems it 
has not. Dragon is supported and part of the default KDE and is pretty solid, 
if still a little feature shy. 

As for K3B, I have no issues using it. I think that removing it entirely is 
bad and reverting to KDE 3 libs to have the old version is bad. So, unless 
there are some serious regressions we are as of yet unaware of, it seems 
pretty stable here.
