Why can't I remove the toolbox?

Conclusion

The toolbox is part of the default desktop containment. It cannot be removed from this containment. However, a custom containment does not contain the toolbox by default, so all you need to do is create your own custom containment (or use one created by someone else) which does not have the toolbox in it.

~ we stop this conversation right now, so i can get back to work

~ someone (probably me) finishes up containment setting and switching

~ someone creates a CustomContainment that lacks a toolbox (by default a CustomContainment doesn't have one)

~ you use that containment

see why i don't want to add a configuration option for this? because it's *not needed*. it's not rocket science to realize that adding code paths for something that has a proper set of solutions that have already been designed for from the beginning is stupid.

yeah, i don't expect you to have figured out that the answer is "containment switching, of course!" because that requires a deep understanding of the inner workings of plasma, which you have already said you're not particularly interested in to begin with.

while i don't expect you to have figured the answer out, i do expect you to stop arguing with me about it unless you have an understanding of the architecture.
