Yea, it makes them look ugly :-P

I think kpowersave would be a better option than klaptopdaemon, it
seems more..... I don't know the word.... nice.

Yea I'd probably be best dropping danny an email, the qt4 port
shouldnt be that difficult I dont think (throw the ui files at qdesigner :)
), the solid port might be a bit more involved, but i suspect (and hope)
that it will be more a case of throwing out redundant code and
replacing it with cleaner solid code. Maybe we can improve solid as
we go ;)
