That may well be true, but I can add from unfortunate experience that if
one strays far from the default because one likes things to be small and
take up less room, one quickly runs into trouble in various parts of KDE4.

There are still several places where one cannot practically resize
something to be the same as a size that worked in KDE3. I assume that the
developers will eventually get around to fixing these things, but in the
meantime it does tend to make KDE4 desktops look clumsy (I can't think of a
better word) on large high-resolution displays, because things are bigger
than one would like, either because:
 1) KDE4 won't let you resize them to the size one wants, or
 2) it does let you resize them appropriately, but in the process switches
from a useful icon to a box devoid of information.

It's one of those things that doesn't seem very important in the Grand
Scheme of Things, but does significantly detract from the user's (or at
least this user's) pleasure of using the desktop on some systems.
