I don't really care what you set it to, as long as it is not the flashy 
icon. It just looks odd. (at first i thought it was a bug, i expected the 
icon to flash, not a square box around it :)

I think this would be a good thing, as it defeats much of the need to mess 
around with the desktop text color to make it readable if it clashes with 
the background. (so i really see this as more of a usability improvement, 
and not an eye candy improvement)

I don't really have an oppinion about the last two. (other than i dont like 
icons on buttons, but i know how to turn them off... :-)

Another one i have been thinking about is to autoload kmix in the system 
notification area (if arts started up), as i think a lot of people expect 
to be able to change the volume there, though i have a feeling i will be 
shot down on this one :-) My rationale is that i am not really sure people 
would know to go look for a mixer program.
