Unit/integration testing? How many projects do you think has any of 
those? Do check how many major projects have anything resembling that 
and you will be in for a surprise. It is to a large extend based on 
testing from end users that these projects get to the point where they 
are.  Maybe that should be different but it isn't the reality at the 
moment.  Every major DE rewrite has been a disaster of sorts. GNOME 
2.0/KDE 2.0 was not really any different. I would agree that messaging 
might have been a bit more clear from the upstream project for this 
release but that doesn't change what we are left with at this point.
