things remaining in kdereview: devicenotifier, mediaplayer, kimpanel

the following items are still in kdreview (along with why):

applets/devicenotifier: it still behaves oddly (e.g. scrollbars appearing) 
when made smallish and while it gives a more "native plasma" look still feels 
a bit unpolished; i think this one should wait for 4.4 as it doesn't offer any 
other compelling advantages at the moment?

applets/mediaplayer: this crashes on load for me with the xine phonon backend. 
this should be resolved before unleashing it upon the world. it seems like it 
might be assuming an actual x window is available to it and therefore not work 
properly in a proxy widget?

applets/kimpanel: it uses a kcfg file with its own kimpanelrc when instead it 
should be using values from the applet's config() (or globalConfig()?); it 
uses QDesktopWidget for the panel positioning when it ought to use 
Applet::popupPosition for the default position; configuration is not 

unless there can be some progress, i suggest delaying these widgets for 4.4.
