I know - and I've said the same thing within the last 24 hours :-)

Well, yes, I think it is. _Everybody_ knew it wasn't ready for Kubuntu, but
Kubuntu included it - not because that's their mission plan - but as near as
I can tell because they _didn't_ include the latest and greatest in 8.04
(because there was no KDE4 ready for the LTS).
So yes, I chose (after initially installing Intrepid) to run Hardy until
Jaunty came along.

Shades of the environment that got the Ubuntu steamroller moving in the
first place - Debian Sarge had taken so long, that everybody wanted a new
Debian, no matter what. KDE bugfixes have languished for years under the
promise of KDE4.
