Features in KDE Base
animate items being removed. whee. the only problem would be if the item is being removed but plasma is quit before the anim finishes... or if some top-level applet calls disappear on itself (though why they'd do that i don't?)
let's see if that ever really matters. if it does, then we can simply keep a list of applets being removed around. but let's play fast 'n loose for now.
