you're kidding, right?
the config dialog alone makes me want to puke, but it sort of misses the point
that the plasma project exists to create a coherent set of such tools that
work well together and with the kde applications.

and it can run plasmoids, i suppose? theme works with krunner and kwin?
let's look at it another way. which is harder and provides a more consistent
* a dock written with plasma
* making cairo-dock integrate with plasma

i honestly don't think you've really thought it through properly.
i do think you saw it's release last week and got all excited about it. which
obviously trumps actually thinking from a design perspective, right? i mean,
why design things properly when we can just hack together a collection of odds
this is now the third such thread on this list in the last month that
approaches things from a "hack it together because it doesn't _really_ matter
what the resulting solution will look like" perspective, and i'm growing
increasingly tired of that.
it is not the plasma way.
