 Gee, right. I'm pretty sure all those people who have left us after the 
KDE3->KDE4 transition did so because they got upset when they still had the 
option to use the things they liked and were used to. Oh, wait.

 Elegance as defined by who?

 But anyway, let me tell you what the steps can be: Check out Qt from git, 
modify to turn those styles into plugins, submit. If Qt can have a JPEG 
loader as a plugin, and we can have our styles as plugins, surely Qt can have 
few styles as plugins too.

 Of course, I admit that's still slightly more work than proclaiming one's 
opinion as the only true way.
