> Easy, show two (or N) icons in the system tray, one for each remote.

it might get messy with N=4 remote controls, conversely when there are no 
remote controls configured but irkick is still running, an icon visible would 
still be useful. a user may have only one remote control with modes (me!) and 
thus may wish for only one status icon for an arbitrary remote control, so 
the solution is perhaps not as immediately obvious as it sounds. however, 
i'll look into doing some sort of a usable solution....

the addaction dialog has recently been changed to use different input widgets 
for different argument types, which should fix this problem. i haven't yet 
gotten round to changing the editaction dialog, but hopefully that'll fix 
this particular problem.

but from what i remember the problem was demonstrable just with a dcop call of 
three QString arguments, who were never anything but QStrings and who never 
touched the config file, were changed into QVariants or anything. see line 
104 and 113 of the same file for the two chucks of code that *should* afaik 
do the same thing but that don't.
