Packaging is not that hard.  It mostly takes a bit of motivation and a very, 
very basic knowledge of some kind of programming (ideally make and shell, but 
it's easy enough to pick up).  Motivation is the hardest thing to come by.  I 
originally got involved in packaging because of similar feelings about a 
different area.

You can't package now, but that doesn't have to remain true.  The existing 
Kubuntu developers are all pretty busy and most of us can only do this in our 
spare time.  To be perfectly honest, the chances of this just happening 
because you asked for it are  low.  If you've got the motivation to get this 
fixed, then I suggest you join us on the #kubuntu-devel IRC channel and we can 
help you learn what you need to know to solve this important problem.
