yes; in fact, my work from last week just before i left for tenerife was done 
in part to make this more easily achievable. we can also, of course, do a 
hell of a lot better for users than providing the icon ghetto.

as for Konqueror ... we have a file manager that is in good shape, we need a 
power user browser and a web browser (konqi currently fills both of those). 
should we hold up 4.0 for it? i don't know.

on a related note i finally got a chance to look through the page on techbase 
and saw that kmail was noted as a showstopper. i wonder what happened to 
the "people can run kde3's kdepim apps in kde4" consensus of just a few 
months ago to result in kmail becoming a *showstopper* for 4.0?
