If we were given an isolated patch, we could include it in the packages.

The freeze date was not a choice of Debian Qt/KDE team. It had to happen some
day and it happened.

Just Debian is too big to care *only* about KDE users. To be honest, if you
use Debian on the desktop system, you'll probably end up using
testing/unstable anyway. Even if the latest 4.5.x was released with stable, it
would get old in a single month. Stable is perfect when you do NOT want
software to change. That's servers, workstations and other deployments where
the latest KDE is not important at all.

4.4.5 crashes occasionally when I push it too hard, I still encounter some
bugs. But really, that's nothing major or release-critical.
