4.2, even with all the eye candy, is snappier than 3.5 on borderline

I wouldn't say my hardware is borderline -- this laptop has 2G of RAM, a
2GHz Core 2 Duo, and a Intel 945GM but KDE 4.2 is not as snappy as 3.5.10.
It feels sluggish at times.

That said, I also turned on transparency and wobbly windows and
inactive/disabled color effects and other things, so it's not an apples-to-
apples comparision and I know that.

Oddly enough, on my desktop machine with faster opterons, more RAM, and an
NVidia video card, the difference between 3.5.10 and 4.2 is even more
