 Despite the thread subject, this kde-core-devel discussion is actually about 
the widget styles, not kwin styles.

 Oxygen, Plastik and Aurorae are staying in kdebase. Something lighter will 
stay too and probably some of the specials (BII, Laptop). The rest will be 
moved to kdeartwork and will be there as long as somebody cares about them 
enough for them to compile, I will not actively prevent people from using 
them if they want. And Martin is testing some new secret plan for the config 
dialog that I need to find out about :).

 And I don't want to remove way too many options from the default selection. 
As far as I'm concerned, it's still better to get a selection with some 
choice that I don't like if there's one I do like rather than get just 3 
options where I like none and need to go to great length to get more.
