There is a quicklaunch widgit out on kde-look that works. It is still in 
its infancy and is somewhat of a pain to get setup. You add applications 
by opening the "*.desktop" associated with the application. Not too 
difficult, just tedious.

Sometimes I wonder.  Were our faith able to stand upright and look around, would it be looking down at the mustard seed or standing in awe of the height and breadth of it.
