  We could promise never to port Harmony to Windows. Most of Troll's
profits are from their /cross-platform/ work; their apps will work
on both Windows and X. We could best ensure this by putting more
X-specific stuff in Harmony. And in any case I don't like the idea
of KDE apps working on Windows; better to have them working only
on Linux to induce more people to go for dual-boot boxes ;)

  Not possible, at the moment, as far as I'm aware. Replacing that shell
ain't easy ;)
