I'm suggesting that the _fact_ that there is no KDE 3.5 or KDE 3.5
SIG, means that what ever interest there is is not enough. There is no
one preventing parallel KDE 3.5 in Fedora.

Ok. I suggest you start a SIG to spin a version of Fedora with all
these stuff put off. I am pretty sure that you're not going to get a
majority of the Fedora workers to agree that preventative measures
should be removed distro wide.
