Yes.  It was in Hardy (maybe Gutsy).  In any case, the idea of sticking close 
to upstream is really a post KDE4 vision for Kubuntu that I seriously question 
given that we're years into KDE4, KDE5 is started, and the transition to KDE4 
was never properly finished (I thought I finally owned a system that I could run 
Nepomuk on and see how well it works, but it's looking like I was wrong).
