The place for config files are defined by core KDE API, following
opendesktop standard. For the moment, the last 15% pending KDE API are core
application classes, included the config rules. When we will make a pure Qt
application, we will make something better. But the last percents to port
still the most difficult to do (as expected)...

sure, more precisely in web site. This last one must be re-designed...

Still the same. No changes in sqlite DB schema. For legacy purpose, the
file name will not change for the moment.
