Well, at least in KMail we have the problem that we have wishlist items
for hundreds of new features which would require additional config
options. So it's not necessarily the developers who want to make
everything configurable but often enough it's the users who want to be
able to configure everything. In this case it's us, the developers, who
need to say "No, we won't make this configurable!". But then the users
start to whine...
