No, it's what invokeMailer starts. That stub then looks if kmail is
running and talks to it if possible. Otherwise it fires up kmail
with the appropriate arguments (replacing the current process with a
new kmail process) . But I agree with Zack, would be cool to somehow
get this working generally by using KUniqueApplication.
