What's actually needed here, and what kde-redhat unstable provides, is not 
something more experimental than Rawhide, but something inbetween 
updates-testing and Rawhide. Rawhide already has KDE 4.1 (prereleases), of 
course, but it's built against the dependencies which are in Rawhide, so you 
have to upgrade a lot of packages to get KDE 4.1 from Rawhide. The 
updates-testing repository, on the other hand, is used to test updates which 
are intended for pushing to the stable updates. In particular, we couldn't put 
KDE 4.1 in there because we needed it to test KDE 4.0 updates. (That's going to 
change in the next few days with KDE 4.1 having reached release candidate 
status and the release being scheduled for the end of the month though.) So 
what kde-redhat unstable provides is the latest KDE from Rawhide rebuilt for 
the Fedora 9 release, a preview of what is going to hit updates-testing later 
and the stable updates soon afterwards.
