Well, try to look at the good side of this.  My only reason for abandoning
Kubuntu 8-04 was that it was going (or was already) out of support.  Now 
10-04 will no longer be supported, I can go back to 8-04 and a usable 
of kmail.  Maybe someday I will find another useful setup with support, but
in the meantime I won't miss Kubuntu post 8-04 and I will still be using 
which I love.

Sorry for the rest of you.
