And why not, if I may ask?  That's how it works.  And does work nicely.

A folder view *IS* part of KDE4.  Therefore, you are working with KDE4.

I still fail to understand what the issue is.  All of that what you 
described is possible by simply using a folder view for the entire 
desktop.  The fact that the icons will be saved on disk on some 
directory is hurting you in some way?
