It would be far more useful to us to have packages based on the same KDE version we ship (4.3/4.4 for 9.10/10.04).  At one point with KDE3 we shipped packages from the enterprise branch in the distro. It might be nice to do that again in the future. 

Kontact is the commercially supported client for Kolab and various
companies still support this version for their customers.  So this is
a useful addition to the available packages for Kubuntu.  Thanks to
Christopher and Intevation for making it happen.
