Thanks, Anne, and all the KDE folks behind this.  I see numbers of 
comments about it on PlanetKDE already, always a very good sign. =:^)

>From my experience of many years helping out on the pan (gtk+ news 
client) lists, having some vetting and user discussion of such feature 
requests before they get filed as bugs can be VERY useful, tending to 
filter out the worst off-the-wall stuff, and give a glimpse of not only 
how many users would find a feature useful, but often, hashing out UI 
details toward making it even more useful, before a single line of code 
is ever written.  Given that actual coding devs and their time is a 
rather limited resource, this can be very useful indeed, so I'm very 
optimistic on this idea. =:^)
