  Followup to let you know what I decided for myself - I have switched
from KDE to Gnome. I tried, but KDE4 is just not ready today.

  Switching was not without some discomfort and effort ... of note:

    - I've been unable to add items to my desktop menu(s)

    - Session save remains broken - still

    - gdm configuration is scattered and peculiar (combination of
/etc/gdm/ files, /etc/gconf, each users gconf, user gdm gconf) ... but
it does work

    - keyring management needs help - and getting gpg-agent and
ssh-agent to work sanely took some scripting which now works perfectly
for me.

    - overall I am content at this point.

   I know I am not the only person who has switched to Gnome. I will
revisit this in the coming months and perhaps KDE can recover to be the
functional, configurable, useful desktop it once was.
