I did get this, and am looking forward to experimenting with it. However 
this close to 8.0 I can't start hacking up the port too much without 
causing some issues :)

Right after the release of 8.0, we'll begin work on 8.1 / 8.0-Stable, 
and when we import KDE 4.4.0, I plan on working on getting these enabled 
properly, and fixing up the port to enable them by default.
