Uh, we'd have the resources to push KDE upgrades to Fn-1 just fine (see 4.2 
for F9, 4.3 for F10 and 4.4 for F11). It's not that much work to build the 
stuff we're building for Fn anyway also for Fn-1.

It's the new unnecessarily paranoid QA we don't seem to have the resources 
for. We already test our KDE upgrades very hard. But most of that testing 
will be on Fn (and Fn+1). The packages we push to Fn-1 would be the exact 
same ones, just rebuilt!

Common sense! But that seems to be lacking in Fedora circles lately. :-(
