Unless I'm missing something really important, Ubuntu and Kubuntu are
the _same_ distribution:  All KDE packages for the joint distribution
are produced by the KDE sub-team, all GNOME packages by the Ubuntu
(GNOME) sub-team, etc.  (I refer to the packages in the package
repositories; what's on various ISO images is whatever was available at
the time of that particular ISO's release.)

My opinion:  Just meet each desired app's dependencies, then run it
under any window manager you prefer.  (Views Differ<tm>.)
