Those guys spent months delaying their work on akonadi just so they could port their poor excuse for user data services to kde4. Need I remind them that such data services should not be even dependant on any desktop being installed. It's no use trying to get through to them though so many developers are wedded to copying bad windows designs. And these guys are worse because their wedded to KDE and won't hear development of anything else. I'm surprised dbus managed to get anywhere.
