Yes, you mentioned that.

Another possibility just came to my mind: Remove the double/year arrows 
altogether:  "<- November 2007 ->"
a) it is possible to change the year by pressing the arrows 12 times. ;-)
b) it is possible to change the year by clicking on it
c) one could possibly attach these nifty drop-down menus to the arrows 
(similar to the back/forward arrows for browsing), allowing to change the 
year or even the decade/whatever.

Feel free to discuss this on kde-usability or whereever else, but I won't 
subscribe to yet another list ATM (sorry, Torsten).  (Also, I wonder if any 
artists are subscribed to that list, and if they approved the new KDP?)
