FWIW, I read that as well.  ... And now we're seeing a complaint from 
going back to inline renaming.  <shrug>  I guess as they say, can't 
please everybody all the time.

It'd be nice to have that as an option, but at least originally, I 
believe dolphin was supposed to be a "simpler" file manager that "just 
worked", without all the "extra" config options of konqueror, etc.  So 
it'd probably end up an option in konqueror, with dolphin either 
continuing to be hard-coded or honoring the konqueror option, but with no 
visible way to set it in/for dolphin.  (AFAIK that's the way the "keep a 
konqueror instance preloaded" functionality works currently.  Setting it 
for konqueror also effectively sets it for dolphin, but there's nothing 
anywhere that actually documents that, it just works that way.)
