A note on this: We need this kind of feedback fed back into Plasma. I know 
it's mainly my fault right now for not putting enough time into it, but I fear 
by monkey-patching out this kind of features, we're making the delta bigger to 
a point where the subsurface team ends up maintaining a set of mobile 
components that have diverged from the Plasma upstream ones. That's not a 
situation that I consider worthwhile spending my time on, and I think it would 
be a net-loss to subsurface in the long run.

Basically everything under qt-mobile/qml/mobileocomponents needs to be done 
upstream. I'd actually prefer not patching it in subsurface, but feeding the 
patches directly through me (or even better the plasma-devel at I'd 
rather not have to sift through commits that need to be disentangled and 
merged upstream in the limited time I can spend on this. A rude way to go 
about this is: patching is fair game, but I'll overwrite from upstream without 
checking, so we all learn the hard way. (I can see how that's not desirable 
for some. :-))

Also feedback about the interaction of the overall navigation needs to be fed 
back to the usability team at KDE that is working on it. (I'm happy to forward 
feedback to our usability people working on this.) The first version with the 
drawer button may not have been perfect, but us monkey-patching it makes it 
hard to maintain and impossible to keep track of improvements upstream. That 
means we'll end up with a half-assed prototype solution patched to death 
without real usability expertise applied.

Sorry if I sound like a buzzkill.
