> Like kicker. It did not require special kiker theme. For example, Qt themes prted from KDE3 (Phase for example) do not have style for plasma and hence the panel looks different than other windows. Ideally the panel should not utilize plasma at all. But since it is not the case, it should at least be able to make impression that it it not plasma, but a normal window.

Then you need to talk with those who are porting the themes. I'm
sorry, but there are KDE 4 themes that do as you expect and I really
don't see a problem. In any case, suggestig that the panel should not
utilize plasma is ridiculous, the panel _is_ plasma.

I do not understand. What would not affect your feel that KDE4 is
something like home-made hobby DE like MinuetOS (An OS that I am not
familiar with, so there is not use in comparing the two)?

I am sorry, I misinterpreted your post as your intention to port the
KDE artwork. I did not mean to insult you by suggesting that _you_
actually put some effort into KDE, which is a community effort. Please
accept my apologies for my misinterpretation, my suggestion, and my
thanks of your incorrectly-perceived offer.

I suppose that my two children, my volunteer work at a
humanitarian-aid center, my university degree, and my own work do not
count as "other things to do" for purposes of one putting an effort
into KDE that we all enjoy. I free you now from even the time that it
would take to file a feature request or respond in an appreciative
manner to someone who is willing to file the feature request for you.
You may now killfile my address and disregard further communication
from me. I won't bother you again, assuming that you realize that
public communications from me (websites, mailing lists) are not
directed for you but rather for all those who read such a public forum
and I cannot prevent your from reading those public forums.
