When Unity Meets KDE: Video Spotlight

Today's video spotlight is a very polished and well-edited one by Youtube user GhindaUcigasa who aims to show us what happens when Ubuntu's Unity Shell meets KDE. It's an interesting concept, to be sure.

Since watching it, I couldn't help but think how much better Unity appeared to belong in Qt4 / KDE-land. The video does not show what all had to be done to pull off such a look and feel. One might argue that combining the design principals of Unity with the power and flexibility of KDE might be an option worth considering. Perhaps he / she will provide a how-to video at a later date. In the meantime, what do you think? Would you try a Unity-like interface in Kubuntu were it available?
