What about having eye-candy on local displays (maybe even only if A/C is 
plugged), and just have a nice, rounded, black border around the active 
window instead for all other cases?

/me would like both
a) a nice, sexy KDE 4 and
b) a KDE that does not *need* so much X traffic in case I run an app remotely 
(which I occasionally need to do, via ADSL), and which does not ruin my 
notebook's battery lifetime (but I am not so much concerned about the 

IMHO one could even focus on a) now and then gradually fix performance 
problems in bugfix releases.
