Nope, unfortunately it doesn't seem to do anything.  And in case this 
controls the Qt style (like Oxygen).  Plasma doesn't use Qt widget 
styles, it seems to have its own style.

I'm on 4.4.0.  IIRC, 4.3.x (4.3.4) didn't have the slide effect (don't 
know about 4.3.5).  I only got it when I upgraded to 4.4.0.
