Well, at least they make it configurable, unlike /some/ popular DEs we 
might name. =:^/  But yeah, that's the only real conclusion one has left, 
that despite the options, the devs don't actually use them much, when 
they keep saying how well kde4 works now, when one knows from experience 
how broken it is in so many places, when one actually tries to use the 
customization options that are available, and that are the reason many of 
us prefer kde in the first place.

Oh, well... it's getting there.  It's just taking a lot longer than we'd 
like, especially with kde3's support dropping as it seems to be, the 
whole reason I even bothered with kde4 when it's so obviously immature 
and partially broken when one actually tries to use it in anything but 
the default config, compared to kde3, still.
