While David Faure filled in the questionaire for the beta goals overview for konqueror, he raised some points that should be discussed here or at kde-core-devel. 

Let me quote him:

Is someone able and willing to track this down?

Konqueror is a beta goal, so we should answer this question soon. I've never thought about this issue, but I think it's pretty important. I've seen desktops where I advised to buy a bigger monitor to fit all the icons.
