Well, probably settings:/ can be fixed, but I wonder if it is worth  
the effort. Apart from this decision (if we decide to kill or fix  
kio_settings protocol, which involves as you might now,  
applications:// programs:// and settings://), I would like to know if  
there are more changes that can be done for 4.0.1, for example:

- Does kdebase/runtime/kcontrol/menus existence make any sense ?
- Could kdebase/runtime/kcontrol be renamed to something else ?
- Could kdebase/workspace/kcontrol be renamed to something else ?

In the case that someone wants to rewrite it we could move it for now  
to playground, and then someone can work on it, make it work, and  
later move it back to kdebase, if we decide it shouldn't be killed yet.

Bye and thanks,
