Obviously, knotes was just an example. All other customizations (such as menus, 
backgrounds&screen-savers, email accounts -- everything under ~/.kde) have to be 
redone too and, frankly, I do not trust today's KDE project to not do the same 
nonsense again, when they decide to abandon KDE4 for 5 (can't be long now that 
the release is 4.8).

The very existence of the project Trinity is a sign, that my opinion is shared 
by a few more people.

No, they have not. The minor security threat cited is easily managed by simply 
not using kdm on a system, where less than trusted users have access. kdm is a 
minor part of KDE anyway (I, for one, use xdm).

Yes, it often can. But not in this case. Yours,
