Ok, I have played a bit around with it.

Left, less transparent icon:

Still right, but less transparent icon:

To be honest, I like the right position better. I'm working here on my machine 
with this patch applied for probably one week, and IMHO it's only a thing to 
get used to (you know the left icons for years, that's why you like it better 
at the moment..).

I think the right position with a transparent icon would give KDE a unique 
look for such messageboxes. But that's just my opition.

It would probably be nice to hear a comment from usability people.
