I envision it as being much more extensive in the future.

Some things about KDE are nice, but I found that I do not like being
without panel drawers.

Interest is one thing, but I do not know that we have the developer
talent and time to undertake this.  Certainly, it would be cool to
see such a thing materialize.

Several thousand users in one fell swoop?  Wow.  *That* certainly
ought to liven things up around here!
