If it wasn't for the "way cool" animation, I would tend to agree with 
you.  But, then there are the bugs.  The X priority of the popup windows 
is wrong -- it is lower than the Panel that spawns them (you only see 
this if you have multiple auto hide panels).  The icons used are 64x64 
and many icons don't come that large yet and as currently setup, KDE 
will NOT enlarge a 48x48 icon to 64x64 if it can find one of another 
theme that is the requested size.
