Actually, I think that double click should be the default behavior. Not because that it is in any way better than single click, but because most users that come from windows will be surprised by this behavior.

After all, if sombody is switching to KDE from some other platform it is much more likely that he have a windows or Mac background than something that uses singleclick. Why unnecessarily surprise people?

Activating things on single click can also make users feel uneasy about activating things by mistake.
