This is the main reason I will not switch. I don't expect it to be 
configurable until 4.1 and not 4.0.1. 

Another thing I've run into is lancealot problems (remote KIO_SLAVE) in the 
lancealot part plug in. 

The "Home" button in Kickoff opens Konq. and not Dolphin (not sure if this is 
an openSUSE related thing as i've not yet tested kde 4 with non kde packages)

A few other quirks but nothing major. I think i'll wait for openSUSE 11.0 
until I actually try KDE 4.x on a production machine. If I get the choice of 
KDE 3.5.8 and KDE 4.1 I may have to keep 3.x until the plasma panel is more 
configurable :o).
