I highly agree on this part since there are some small but nagging areas in 
the KSplash/ML code-base that are in a great need of fixing. For one: the 
fact that NONE of the changes that you do using the customization dialog are 
saved when you press apply. Don't get me wrong, I LIKE KSplash/ML much more 
than KSplash, it just needs some code clean-ups/fixes to be 100%.
