My thought exactly - esp. when I recalled having seen some suggestion of renewed KDE Windows activity, hinting at a jump from 4.7 (or so) to KF5 ...

Yes, it'll provide the backtrace (if the system is configured to popup the crash dialog). But to my knowledge it's not possible/trivial to get the report sent elsewhere but to Apple.

As you know, kde-workspace contains a number of things that are not really related to (having) a workspace per se: SystemSettings and the oxygen theme. I'd love to see the theme available in KF5 (esp. if Qt5 tackles the compositing glitch the theme currently suffers from), and the systemsettings app is just plain handy even if it doesn't have all possible controls.
Unless of course someone volunteers to glue all those kcms into a PreferencePane O:-)
