First of all, I think it's quite ok to ask for "new stuff" in hoary.
If it's possible to upgrade gnome or kde via ubuntu-backports let's do
If it's too much efford, because of new things in gnome, which is
requiring a new toolchain etc. then you should not backport the new
But annoying people to name them "greedy manipulators" is not a good
idea. Better to stop hitting the reply button to those mails then.
