No need to apologise. This way, everybody who reads this list and 
didn't know this before, knows now. It's better to clear up these 
misconception and have a little noise than to have them persist.

A little aside: it's better to report KDE bugs directly to KDE since 
the Kubuntu team is seriously understaffed and doesn't get around to 
doing this themselves. So launchpad isn't the best place to report 
all bugs, anyway.
