Maybe they just forgot to enable it, but I've seen a video of the new KDE4.3, and the window decorations (for windows, not plasma applets) still look as awful as they did before. Where's the new theme?

You have misunderstood. "Window manager components follow plasma theming", it doesn't mean window borders are themed in Plasma style. That'd be crap anyways. It is the compositing effects' parts that change with the current Plasma theme. But it seems to be very small changes. I've only noticed the text labels in Cover Flow and the Cube.

I myself am not a fan of the layout customizing tool that's currently in use at least in Amarok and Kopete (since KDE 4.3). It's very complicated and uncomfortable to use.
