Well, my opinion is different...:-)
Does the last phrase means that kmdi will still be accessible?

The set of plugins (core and not core) is somehow divided - some are shown at 
the bottom, some at the left side, etc... What is the criteria and how (if 
any) it can be changed?

Because when there are many tabs, they occupy the place and necessary tabs are 
pushed out into the second row (or invisible because of bug?). In my case, 
the application tab is not used at all, in IDEAl I simply drugged it to the 
less populated and less used place and it did not disturb me.

Hmm, rather pity - for example, automake manager usually needs a lot of 
vertical space. In IDEAl mode it used all...
