Other than Mike's penchant for top-posting, I have to agree. (I put your
remarks where they belong, Mike :} ) It's not supposed to be and never
has been a big deal to add a non-kde app to the task-bar or the K-menu.
I've done that for eons. In my Kmenu I have gnome applications as well
as other apps that are non-KDE that I added manually. I picked a likely
icon, as Mike points out, and I'm home free, just as happy as a June
Bug. I'll wait a cycle or two before I install F9.
