i really don't care *what* the style is (as long as it's not eye-bleedingly 
bad, of course =), but i do have issues with changing it time and again. i do 
have issues with the "keep bringing up a topic until you get your way" non-
system of decision in kde. sometimes the answer is to realize that some things 
aren't *that* important compared to keeping momentum and respecting the 
resolution to a matter already made.

bottom line is that there is a style there, it's been in use for over a year, 
changing it will only make someone else's preferences seem left out.

as such, even though i too have small disagreements with the style, i strongly 
object to any changes to the style policy at this time.
