Well, the grub thing has been going on for years, from well before kde4.  
It was just hidden better, because as I said, it's a small enough program 
that the distributions could reasonably take up the slack.

It seems trinity is doing the same with kde3, but it took long enough to 
pick it up that the gap was very visible to users, and it remains to be 
seen how well they'll do.  But I do wish them well, it's actually possible 
to do with FLOSS, and if things go well, here in a few years we'll have a 
qt (by then qt4) based "lite" desktop, with trinity or whatever they've 
decided to call it by then, parallel on the qt side, to the gtk-based xfce 
on the gtk side.  Perhaps that's the best of both worlds, but it would 
have been nice had that support gap never had to happen. <shrug>
