I think the key is to stick to the following kde3 core values when evaluating features: (1) Is it more efficient? (a) can you do more with less keystrokes or mouse clicks?

(a) not from a "Gee-Whiz" standpoint, but can it provide real features to benefit the average user --or-- provide a better interface for those with impairments.
