I second this.

Another vote.

From my view, KDE has a quite small userbase compared to what it will 
have(Beginning of next year seem to be pretty advancing for KDE's part). It 
is better if we change styles now than later. Somehow I find it ok, KDE is 
afterall still under heavy development(especially UI wise) and it must be 
possible to develop - we can't blame ourselves. If there is _good_ reasons to 
change style I would go for it. Since the style applies to the whole 
enviroment and is consistent it is fairly quick to adapt to. Although my 
experience with such changes are low..

My two swedish cents.
