I've been on this list as long as there's _been_ a list, and honestly, I
don't believe a large number ever complained about kcontrol. There
have, though been many complaints that things they _had_ in kcontrol
weren't showing in the newer "System Settings" (which in hindsight were
mostly not real problems, but the interface changed enough to confuse
people - without any help being offered).

Different people - and they have a hell of a point. If dolphin could
actually do more file management than konqueror did, it wouldn't be a
problem. If the dolphin kpart actually properly integrated into
konqueror, it wouldn't be a problem. Explain to me why I can split the
konqueror view pane, and open Dolphin in both sides, but I can't split
the view pane _from_ the Dolphin kpart? That's just sloppy.

Another thing is certain - if you ignore the people who are complaining,
the things they're complaining about won't go away.
