Then there's the issue of kickstarting a measely $5k - I tend to think that a game developer who can't even put together that tiny amount of capital need not be developing a game. Hell, I could raise $5000 in a few months delivering pizzas on the side.

That's what they were doing, trying to put together $5,000. Why waste time delivering pizzas for a few months if you can sell a few pre-orders and get started on what you want to do?

I think I see your point. It doesn't make them look like a very professional outfit and I can see how it would undermine confidence in them - but I don't really see why. It seems like it should be a last resort (which I think is what you're implying?) but I don't see any actual reason for this other than Kickstarter's relative newness and that some others, like Chris Taylor, have used it as a Hail Mary option.
