Yes, I contacted the two people who I was told most directly watch over
the KDE ports and both preferred we shift to KDE4.

It will be available for install from packages through the net (FTP
based install, or one of the other package tools that can be told to
download the packages).  I'm afraid I can't fit it on the ISO release
media.  Even with the DVD media we currently have a limit caused by the
tool many of our mirror sites use for mirroring - files larger than 2Gb
cause issues (that's why the DVD image is gzip-ed).  We're slowly
working to resolve that.
