While in hindsight some of the project's goals were a bit too ambitious,
this has been true at some point for many open-source projects over the
years.  A better measure of success is whether or not the project is still
alive and moving forward, along with an active and engaged userbase.  At
this time I think we can answer both questions with "Yes!".

I encourage you to hack on the KDE SC 5 sources to fix the issues you have
experienced, and then work on getting the resultant patches into KDE SC 5
so that all may benefit from them.  AFAIK the KDE 4 series has
transitioned into maintenance mode at this time, so it is highly unlikely
that you will get anything UI-changing accepted into the KDE 4 series

Just my $0.02. :-)
