One way to get things fixed in Ubuntu

Become famous and then blog about it. Its easy (the blogging part). And it
works [1a, 1b].

Now if only someone famous blogged about some other literal showstoppers in
beagle and KNetworkManager, some more Kubuntu users would be happy [2].
Beagle is second class citizen in Ubuntopia, but I thought KNetworkManager is

One thing I noted though, since Beagle was moved to Universe from Main, it is
getting better treatment. Periodic sync from debian is actually happening
unlike when it was in main; the core Ubuntu developers rarely found time to
update the Beagle package. Kudos to Masters of the Universe!
