Do some homework for me, tell me where it came from upstream. You
might even want to file it at Ubuntu's launchpad, as it was an Ubuntu
specific widget set so far as I can tell.

If you will be very specific about what changed and how you would
prefer it, then I could file it. But just asking for KDE3-style won't
help. Pretend that the dev is unfamiliar with KDE 3, and describe it
that way.
