good info to have indeed; on the plasma side, there are two big areas we can 
(and will) do better at:

- DataEngines will eventually have all their timers consolidated into one 
tick, just as with the animations
- the taskbar is currently fairly poor as it does a lot of painting and 
computation on each window switch; more so than it needs to. i don't the kde4 
taskbar will even be quite as good as the kde3 one in this regard as it will 
be more eye candy (e.g anims) but it can (and will) be better than what is 
there now.

also, was your data measuring a loaded desktop sitting there doing nothing, or 
were you doing things as well (e.g. open a document, move a window..)?
