Well, I think changing the default style/decoration would be better done at 
the beginning of a development cycle, instead of at the end. 
This way, any issue could be addressed in time. I think changing the style 
just before the release is not the best plan.
Just think about the snapshots for the documentation... 
Now multiply by the number of languages we have to support.
Do you still think changing style now to be a good idea?

However, you can run a poll now, it will be useful for kde3.3, which I hope to 
be a quicker release than 3.2.
