Not a developer, but a user for a long time and also one that sometimes play 
with the window button order:-)

You are somewhat correct in remembering the last button fiasco, it was one of 
the betas to KDE 2.0 (Beta 3, KDE 1.92) not 2.x. Mosfet got lots of flames 
for that move(Some for the lack of menu button and the odd non square buttons 
too). That experiment basicly ended up as todays Laptop window decoration, 
when you use it's default button order.

IMHO the Laptop configuration is a better configuration than Aaron's 
suggestion, but I'm just a grumpy old-timer so...

Anyway, why not try it out on the next RC to test the waters? At least Aaron 
will not get the usual complaints about Plasma and the stuff he already know 
are not finished there, since those complainers would be to busy complaining 
abut the button order:-) 

Best regards
