I agree with fullscreen that it's an improvement but for the other options, as
long as they can be unambiguously named, I don't see how a checkbox (instead
of changing the text) is less usable. For instance, I'm soon going to have a
Settings menu full of KToggleAction's:
[ ] Color Box
[ ] Tool Box
[ ] Statusbar
[ ] Full Path
Like with the toolbars, I think it would be untidy and visually less clear to
have them as "Show / Hide" toggle actions.
