The (little) issue I had with the previous appearance of systemsettings was 
that the white space on the right side made it appear asymmetric. My mockup 
fixes this and removes by the oppurtunity the unnecessary overview button, 
what makes it simpler without removing functionality. Imho that's what all 
want. My idea was to have dynamic widgets on the bar, the overview button 
should only be visible if a kcm is shown, while the general / advances 
settings buttons and the search bar only if the overview is shown. But I'm 
unsure, how it would feel if the overview button gets pressed and another 
button appears directly under the mouse. Could be also no problem at all ;)
