 They're just saved in kdeglobals, global shortcuts in [Global Shortcuts] and 
application shortcuts in [Shortcuts]. The app ones seem to be written only if 
they differ from the default value, the global ones are written either as 
simply e.g. 'Ctrl+Alt+M' ('none' for none), or as 'default(Ctrl+Alt+M)' when 
it equals the default value.
