Flags-per-country are just as bad.  Has everyone so quickly forgotten
the reason we removed flags altogether from kcontrolcenter?

Which flag are you going to put for Taiwan / Republic of China?

For a bit of fun, try visiting the bug reports on this:

Both give "You are not authorized to access with logging in" errors,
and you're blocked from these bug reports completely from China.
And then you've got petitions from both sides,

And then you've got the whole "Palestinian Territory" flag mess etc.

Stay away from political landmine.
