No.  Although the question is off-topic, it is seriously put and I would
like to see answers.  The new window-move feature is a done deal, but
how much consideration will core developers give in future to the possible
costs and inconvenience caused to application developers and
end-users (not just "advanced" users) when new KDE features
are introduced?

All the best, Ian W.
