I figured as much once you started talking about how it's plain not 
coded yet :-). So... fine by me.

Too bad about the bold-ness though :-(, I thought that was useful.

Ah... no. Exactly the *opposite*.

Yup. What you describe is exactly what I'm /complaining/ about, so I 
guess we're complaining about the same thing. :-)

Maybe I should ask that differently (since I'm not familiar with 
KDirOperator)... does the widget kdevelop will end up using have a 
setting to allow "expanding folders", or is that extra code in dolphin? 
If the former, I don't care where the setting is, or even if you name it 
"SuperHappyFunFolders" (ok, I might care about /that/ ;-)...), so long 
as it can be enabled. (Alternatively, if you want to make that the 
*only* option, that's fine by me, but other people might complain.)

Did you hear about the pig that makes footwear for cows? He's a real moo 
shoe pork.
