Well, in *my* opinion, the old Kicker effect (Icon just changes for a bigger one 
  at mouseover) is cooler than the OS X effect (Icon gets gradually bigger as 
the mouse-cursor approaches).

So, if the former effect would be implemented somehow, returning the kde 3.3 
style, no Apple patent would be broken, right? :)
