Exactly. Please postpone this feature until after 3.1.

Full ACK.

I consider this a serious show-stopper.

Now, that's are really good argument. _NOT_!!!

Of course you can always nuke yourself by simply pulling the power plug. 
But this doesn't mean it should be made easy to nuke somebody else by 
accident. Actually it should be made as difficult as possible to nuke 
somebody else by accident.

BTW, I don't see this feature listed on the feature plan for KDE 3.1.

Just for your information (from the release plan for KDE 3.1):
Monday July 1, 2002: Preparing Alpha1 and feature plan freeze

You presented your patch on September 20, i. e. more than 10 weeks after 
the feature plan has been frozen.

Could the release dude please tell Oswald to revert?
