This is on my todo:

* The icons in the menus are too big and colorful for debian menus. We need
  an icon standard!

And we really do need something in policy about what icons are allowed.
Right now, I'm just using the ones that come with kde, and I agree they're
too big and too many colors, but I haven't had time to fix it yet. I'd like
to see an icon policy first, so I could just make the icons comply to it.

The diwnodws touches are disturbing (have you looked ad kfind... eeew!).
But, I find kdm + kpanel are far better than fvwm2, even in this alpha
state. That's really all the kde stuff I'd use at present.
