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. =:^)
