in my humble opinion that was/is the correct choice. Kontact 4.6 was NOT 
ready for "production use" in the test run I did and as I have noted 
from other forums/internet search the distro(s) that did package it with 
SC 4.7 are having loads of unhappy users trying to come to terms with 
various problems relating to upgrade of kde-pim.
