during my admittedly brief foray into post-3x kde, i found nothing i wanted 
and much i didn't want. it made me wonder what the developers supposed it 
was to be good for.

so the occasional little bump -- such as the briefly lost addressbook -- is 
a small price to pay for a solid desktop. (though a little informational 
pop-up with instructions as to addressbook migration would be helpful, if 
there's some reason why the process can't be or shouldn't be automated.)
