When I posed this question in $subject, I was not thinking of any speci-
fic window deco feature or mis-feature in the first place. I meant it
in a much more generic way.

Will KDE4 in general be "performant enough" for remote X/NX? Does anyone
even test this? (and if you need a way to simulate conditions of low
bandwidth / hi latency), just look at my blog posting here:
