I took a few minutes of time to squeeze out a mockup:

To my own surprise it reduces clutter to a greater degree than I thought it would while 
also not losing any features.

As a side note: In the "All effects" tab the categories are sorted alphabetically.
While in theory that sounds good, seeing "Tools" above "Window Management" makes no sense.
"Tools" is probably no used by anyone besides a handful of people who develop KWin and 
benchmarking geeks.

I'd also merge a few effect entries that are mutually exclusive: There are at least two 
Minimize effects which could be merged into one entry with "Normal" or "Genie" as radio 
buttons in the effect's config window.
Same for closing windows, magnification lens, etc.
