That's right, but installing both ubuntu-desktop and kubuntu-desktop on 
a machine isn't a huge amount of customization IMHO. In this special 
case the pitfall for the user is that the Hardy system was LTS for the 
Gnome part and simultaneously non-LTS for the KDE part. I was just 
wondering what the upgrade process should / would do in this case.

Example: Two people using the same machine and they can't agree on a 
common DE.
