the timezone tooltip already does use a table to align content. as for the
calendar popups: don't bother. i've started a branch in kde-workspace called
plasmaclock/eventsinline where i plan to gratuitously steal some design ideas
from gnome-shell's calendar popup: calendar on the left, events on the right.

KAlarm is in kdepim and is an application; not sure it makes sense to
integrate with KAlarm itself. if the data is kept in akonadi, then it could be
put there? my concern, however, would be that if there is no GUI provided for
the alarms (e.g. due to not having kdepim installed), then we end up with a
feature that is useless. some thought should be put into making alarm
notifications a desktop service perhaps that we can rely on being there.

-1; what is the use case for this? unlike with the date, where it is a matter
of how much information is shown versus how much space it takes up, there is
no such issue with the time. all this would mean is bloating the config UI,
add more (if trivial in this case) code paths and provide one more place that
the user needs to go fiddle with things. please, no.

if it isn't, it should be.

listing BR#s on the page would nice ..
