Yes, I also like single click.
And finally, since this is the default in KDE for many years now already, we 
shouldn't change it too easily, too many people are used to it for more than 
5 years already.

I plan to change the selection behaviour of the konqy listviews for KDE 4. The 
way I implemented it for KDE 2 was "suboptimal" ;-)
Anyway, except getting rid of some strange keyboard/mouse coordination effects 
the behaviour  shouldn't change IMO.
What do you feel is wrong with it ? Are there bug reports about it ?
