Not quite true Jay, Styles are destroyed even done your way.  Since I only 
use mosfet liquid, I can't tell that total extent of the damage, but mosfet 
had to be recomiled to get the style back.  All the other settings for 
liquid were left intact.  KDE worked and I don't think a recompile is 
necessary, but I would not be surprised if we find out it's better to 
recompile.
