Uh, we would very much be willing to do that in KDE SIG. It's not going to
happen because there is "pressure from above" to focus on GNOME, not
because the manpower to focus on KDE is not there (which is not the case).

I think, you are being unrealistic. Within Fedora, there is definitely more man power for GNOME than any other desktop environment since there is many more people working full time on that. That is unlikely to change. Red Hat has hired more people in KDE as well but it is not the same amount of resources. This is not a slight against the KDE SIG which has been very proactive but just a reflection of the facts.

Just look at how we have been able to consistently produce a KDE spin with
no showstoppers since Fedora 7 and how we are constantly keeping KDE up to
date in releases (even to an extent the GNOME folks aren't doing, see e.g.
the upgrade from KDE 4.0 to 4.1 in Fedora 9).

No showstoppers is definitely relative. KDE 4.0.x in Fedora 9 was controversial. I dont consider that a packaging issue however.
