I'm biting my tongue here, because to say this "feature" is confusing,
worthless and contradicts standards is an understatement. :-)

THANK YOU!  Not all developers feel that way...

I've got a GNOME bug report to prove it. :-)   But I digress....

But it seems then that it's been an option that K(U)ubuntu wasn't
utilizing until Edgy.

And as has been pointed out, it's a result of the "kubuntu-default-
settings" package.  This "feature" wasn't in said package prior to Edgy,
so clearly it's  a decision made by the Kubuntu team (or Jonathan
Riddell, the package maintainer). It didn't come from KDE or GNOME.
