Well, synaptiks uses C++ exceptions.  I don't know, if that is an issue … 
kdelibs doesn't use exceptions, but on the other hand I didn't find any policy 
on KDE techbase, that advises against using exceptions.

Aside of this, I tried to keep as close as possible to the KDE policies and 
guidelines describe on KDE techbase, concerning code style and conventions, 
API documentation and i18n.

Adding new touchpad configuration settings to synaptiks isn't really difficult 
(see r1096669 for an example).   I just need a list of features, that are 
missing …
