I'm interested in solving the problem you brought up. We do in fact have a common, re-usable component in the QML side with Carl's recently added component. Creating one on the QTWidgets side would be good too. I'm always in favor of high-level controls with semantic meaning, e.g. "this is a search field" rather than "this is a text field that we happen to be using as a search field by doing all this stuff so it over and over again". Then we can use the same control everywhere and control the behavior and appearance in just one place.
The Appearance section is now done!

Here are the Bugzilla tickets tracking the individual work items for this:
Yeah, it sounds great.
FWIW Plasma Nano is my favorite too because of how it rolls off the tongue: two words each with two syllables, with a vowel sound ending the first word and consonant sound beginning the next one.
Plasma Mobile is already using the tagline "Plasma in your pocket" which suits the project really well, so I wouldn't go with "Pocket Plasma" because it could easily get confusing.

Oh one more thing - should we push the entire clock + stack a little bit further down to make it more (or entirely) vertically centered?
That drives me bananas too! It looks so tantalizingly clickable. +1 for replacing it with something that doesn't look like a button. Also, I'd like to make this screen not even appear at all when there's only one existing session; instead just go straight to SDDM: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=386361

"Pocket Plasma" - if only for the alliteration ;)
Not the login screen, but since we've been touching all of them up: "Oh by the way, and I know I should write a bug report about that, but when switching users, there is this giant PLUS icon above a "new session" label, and under all that a "Start a new session" button. It bugs my significant other that the PLUS icon is non-clickable. :-)" - user opinion
@ngraham I think for the mediaframe we also need to port the Places category and for systemtray we still need to port Entries.
"Plasma Nano" is cute - I can imagine a cute Konqi going with this.
"Plasma Ion" is cool and goes with the trend started by Neon.
Active is unfortunately burned. I wouldn't recommend using it.
