Ok, I see out of the packages I build there are no uses of kde_default
outside of addResourceType (afaict). However after looking a bit more
I see that some KDE apps appear to be directly accessing files with
hardcoded paths. There are probably more that I missed but below is what
I saw when looking in KDE_3_1_BRANCH. Shouldn't they be using directory
lookups, or in some other way not hardcoding the path? I also noticed
some paths are inside i18n'd strings, they probably should be split out
as well.


khelpcenter/docmetainfo.cpp:    kstd->addResourceType( "data", "share/apps/khelpcenter" );

kwallet/backend/kwalletbackend.cc: KGlobal::dirs()->addResourceType("kwallet", "share/apps/kwallet");

midi/timidity.cpp:#define KMIDI_CONFIG_SUBDIR "/share/apps/kmidi/config"
noatun/library/equalizer.cpp:   QString basedir=kapp->dirs()->localkdedir()+"/share/apps/noatun/eq.preset/";

kppp/convlog.tcl:foreach i [glob -nocomplain ~/.kde/share/apps/kppp/Log/*-199?] {

lanbrowsing/lisa/netmanager.cpp: tmpFilename+=MyString("/.kde/share/config/")+tmpBase;
lanbrowsing/lisa/netmanager.cpp: tmpFilename+=MyString("/share/config/")+tmpBase;

kalarmd/testalarmdlg.cpp:  a->setAudioFile( "/opt/kde/share/apps/korganizer/sounds/spinout.wav" );
korganizer/korganizerIn.in:$outfile .= "share/apps/korganizer/income/";
kpilot/kpilot/kpilot.cc: CSL1("share/apps/kpilot/DBBackup"));
