Proposal for KControl

What would be the problem, if applications using the konsole part or the 
spellchecking facilities provide a menu entry in their settings menu. This 
menu item could show the dialog boxes containing the widgets currently in 

Would it be to confusing for the user, if I rename the component chooser to 
component configurator and add move the spell checking and konsole settings 
in there (additional to the above paragraph) ?

Kind regards
