That situation has now persisted for about a week, which is approximately the 
amount of time I can stand using KDE 4, and which is beginning to stretch the 
meaning of "temporary". That is why I brought it to attention with a bug 

I am willing to sit through issues in unstable, and I understand the issues 
involved in using it, but for all I know the maintainer's main focus may be on 
another architecture, and a missing package may just be a simple oversight. 
The bug report was in no way meant to be a kick in the shins. (Hey, this is 
not the Mozilla BTS ;-))
