to set sizes as small as one is comfortable with.

That's fine...I deal with this all the time: items that are optimized for the
majority. That's reality. I'm just glad when developers consider the "tiny
minority" in their design (which is why I use KDE).

How else do we learn of the merits or failings of a product if not through
discussion. It sounded to me from Gustin's original post (and your comment
about small sizes), that KDE development was going away from permitting those
small settings. My apologies for presuming incorrectly.

...ah, yes. My apologies.

Kewl...thanks for clearing up the confusion.
