I'm on board with finding a better way to organize things and I believe that KDE as a project won't take away things just because it's cool, but what is the answer for cases when a user really does want a rigid hierarchy? I have not used KDE4 for a few releases, or the Active stuff at all, but it seems to me that there isn't a known solution to the problem that will satisfy the people who want hierarchies and the people who would find life easier without rigid parent->child restrictions (especially since sometimes these are the same people).
Are you hoping that a purely non-hierarchical system won't be as unpleasant as people seem to fear or do you know of a solution that is known to satisfy both cases?
