I'm not sure you or I are in a position to say what the duties of the Kubuntu 
developers is or should be.  I can only say that I won't use Kubuntu Intrepid 
at all until the 4.1 PPA I occasionally log into works reliably.  

It would be sad if Kubuntu turned into a niche distro because of premature 
adoption of KDE 4.
