Just to get this out in the public: I for one think 5.x has enough changes in
it and would like for KSE to be postponed to 6.0-current and 6.0-release.  I
know that I am in the minority on this, but wanted to say it anyways.  It
doesn't mean I don't like the KSE work or anything like that (I've even helped
out on it some), I just think we have enough work in our basket.  Also, I'll
point out that p4's merging abilities make tracking current relatively easy,
much more so than if Julian was maintaining a separate tree with this patch and
having to keep updating current and manually merge it all the time.
