It's not that easy to use. Not talking about with your design, just in 
general. I hate it and am glad I don't need it. 
There's german version around somewhere, but I don't have the link at hand.

IMO it's too early for you to do a final layout. It's even too early to do any 
layout, since the content isn't defined yet. I'm referring to the "what goes 
into which navigation and how is the navigation structured" and the "what 
content goes on the front page" discussion. Up to now you made a lot of 
layouts, have spent a lot of time making changes to the wishes of others and 
of yours. I'm not saying it was useless since it showed you are very creative 
and it gave others a couple variations to look at and drool. :P
But IMO now we should set the basics straight and look what will actually go 
on the page so you know what you're working for.
That takes us back to the time plan. I agree with you that there is no use in 
a pressed time shedule. KDE 4 isn't in sight, we're in the mid of the 3 
series and can't make it for KDE 3.1. So why hurry?

I'm pretty tired, but I'll try to put a new one up tonight.
