Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
This may sound very naive, but what about a deal where everyone recognises Kosovo in return for both Serbia and Kosovo being admitted to the EU at the same time and under the same conditions.  Thus a new boarder is created and made less important at one and the same time.  An EU high Commission would be created to safeguard minorities on either side of the boarder and ensure all administrative bodies act in a non-discriminatory way.  Over time, we might get back to a situation similar to Tito's Yugoslavia, where there were regional tensions, but not much by way of bloodshed, and the region was able to function reasonably successfully.
