KDE virtual desktop use being depreciated?

I'm just wondering if the concept of using "virtual desktops" is being
phased out in KDE.
The reason I ask/wonder is that with F16 when one brings up KDE the
"pager" widget is not visible on the default panel. A little poking
around reveals you have to increase the number of "virtual desktops" to
be more than the default of 1 in "system settings", "workspace behavior".
So, under the current default configuration a person new to KDE may not
have a clue that an option exists for "virtual desktops".
It even took me a bit of time to realize what was happening. In F15 the
default number of "virtual desktops" was set to 4.
A common mistake that people make when trying to design something
completely foolproof was to underestimate the ingenuity of complete
fools. -- Douglas Adams in "Mostly Harmless
