Agree 100%.  The only thing I would add is that every now and then the
Trinity project gets some "green" developers that need a relatively simple
task or tasks to get used to the development process.  As a kcontrol
module can be very simple (a UI file and some simple C++) this might be a
good RFE for them to cut their teeth on.  Hence my request to add it to
the bugtracker. ;-)

After 3.5.12 is out we will need to get a list of future improvements and
associated priorities together.  The top two as far as I am concerned are:
1. Converting to the CMake build system (automake is getting long in the
tooth and new, weird build problems seem to crop up for every release).
2 Adding Qt4 support to the TQt interface.

I cannot do either one by myself as they would take years when my other
responsibilities are factored in. ;-)
