This feature makes only sense if the new tabs are opened in a Konqueror 
which is on the same desktop as the other application _and_ which is at 
least partly visible. In all other cases the user might think he didn't 
click the URL correctly and will click it another time. If this feature 
works only in case of a visible Konqueror then it might indeed be 
useful. In all other cases (opening in tab in a not visible Konqueror, 
be it minimized or on another desktop or simply hidden by other 
windows) this doesn't make much sense (IMO) unless this not visible 
Konqueror is automatically raised and given focus.
