1-repeatable sizing of panel height (impossible via KDE4 drag; easy in KDE3
via KControl)

There is a feature request for this. In the meantime you can edit
your plasma config file, although I know this is not a good solution.

2-manual hiding of panel

This will be in 4.5

3-default panel height and icon size are not auto adjusted larger for higher

This sounds like a bug.

4-mc missing from Konsole menu

5-mc doesn't automatically restart when left open in Konsole on logging out

Make a new profile named mc (or anything you like) with the command
being /usr/bin/mc and (optionally) set it as the default. For some
reason switching to the profile using right-click doesn't work, you
need to select it from the "file" menu which will make a new tab with
mc in it.

6-file pickers stink compared to

That would be nice, but you can add and remove folders from the places
panel pretty easily and the application launcher keeps a list of
recently-used documents at least.

7-various windows do not reopen to size at last closing

Right click on the title bar, click "advanced", "special window
settings" "geometry", check "size" and set it to "remember".

8-tree view for "systemsettings" is neither default nor a traditional tree

It is not default because it is considered less intuitivefor ordinary
users, and advanced users can change it easily enough. It is designed
to mimic the 3.5 tree view, whether that is traditional or not is
irrelevant to the purpose of the

9-YaST -> _system_ settings; personal settings -> personal desktop config

Isn't YaST a root application? Wouldn't changing personal settings
there change the root user's settings? You can open YaST from system
settings, though (or personal settings, I guess, since opensuse
renamed it for some reason).

10-all of panel should be configurable via personal desktop config settings
(similar to KDE3)

Which panel? You can have an unlimited number of panels. Which one
would you configure in system settings? If you can configure multiple
panels, how would you identify them?

11-plasma - I can't logically associate my understanding of the word's
natural meaning with what it applies to in KDE4
( 1, 2, 5)

It's just a name. What does "konqueror" or "kicker", or "nautilus",
"gnome", "apple" or "acrobat" for that matter, have to do with what
the application does?

12-akonadi - overhead that that cannot be turned off even though I use
nothing that depends on it (Mozillas for web; mc for file management &
searching; OS/2 for contacts)

Can't you just not install the KDE pim applications?

13-distinction between general and advanced classification of objects in
systemsettings is difficult to ascertain

Yes, I think this is going away for 4.5 (or at the very least being
divided better) as part of a general reorganization of system

14-keyboard/mouse seems more like "look & feel" (personal) than "computer
administration" (YaST)

I think this is going in a general "Hardware" category for 4.5 if I
recall correctly. Criticisms of the current system settings layout
are not really relevant come 4.5.

15-why are "input actions" and "keyboard & mouse" two separate things? Seems
like they should either be 3 things or 1 thing.

Also being fixed for 4.5, I believe.
