Yes, agreed.
About that "configure toolbar" there are small bugs that i hope they will be 
fixed in kde4. (the fact that it's not possible to add plugins action to the 
main toolbar)
In my dream, the toolbar could be configured by drag and drop icon on it (like 
on C++Builder back in 1997)

This can be done using XML files.
Create an application to edit KXMLGUI files is not difficult.
(But i know, this tools doesn't exist, and will probably never exist if noboy 
write it)
