Since I assume that the usage of the panel is not that binary for the
majority, i.e. hide buttons=useable, no hide buttons=unuseable the
priority will be quite low. If a lot of people could not get their work
done without those buttons, it would be implemented already.

That is not the point. In KDE3 there was an option to add hide-buttons. In
case of KDE4 the "development" resulted in a less-functional window
manager. Not only in this regard.

Either a lot of people miss a function, then it is likely that it will be re-
implemented (KDE4 plasma was written from scratch) or the functionality is not
really as popular as you think. Maybe some even considered it as clutter. If
you need it, do something to get it or wait. That's the way opensource works.

Complaining about something you get for free and at the same time not be
willing to spend your own resources on something you consider crucial seems a
bit inconsistent. Why should somebody else do you a favour if you yourself are
not willing to put that work/money into it?

As with all opensource things you use for free there are only two ways to
get the features you want: a) spend your own money or free time to get
them implemented b) wait until somebody else does so.

The same applies compared to KDE3.

So? KDE3 is dead and just because somebody spent his time on it, does not mean
that the same person will spend his time again on KDE4 implementing the same
