But since this has proved controversial, it's obviously not going in anytime 
soon, so no need to worry about that.

Dolphin, it automatically shows up in all apps now, right? Or am I wrong and 
there is a way to make things appear only in Dolphin and the file open/save 
dialogs, but not other apps' own uses of `KFilePlaces`? If so, that would seem 
to be an obvious intermediate solution and I'll focus on that.

  I don't think almost any users use or know about that because the two most 
obvious methods of adding something to the Places panel--drag-and-drop and the 
file's "Add to places" context menu item--make it global by default. Also if we 
add Music and Pictures et al to just Dolphin by default, then they're not going 
to show up in the file open/save dialogs where they're useful, right?
