Do I get it right that you ask for an UVF exception for NEW packages (rather 
than for updates)?

What do you think will be the major gain from putting these into universe 
instead of e.g. using an alternate repository?

Do you think the kubuntu team will be able to support these packages post 
feisty e.g. via SRUs?

Also reading from the spec that configuration files will be in .kde4 won't be 
migrated to .kde once KDE4 is in place makes me a little bit sceptical about 
the general upgrade path post feisty. Can you elaborate on this a little bit?

Finally @UVF-team, what's your opinion on this?
