true... but this makes warningContinueCancel different from warningYesNoCancel
due to the difference between "Continue" and "YesNo" when the real issue is
the severity (e.g. warning) of the dialog...
more to the point, i just grep'd KDE CVS for warningContinueCancel usage and
found 224 instances. not all seem to be guarding "dangerous" or inconvenient
actions, though most/all are warnings of some sort. i'm concerned about
simply changing the semantics of an existing dialog like that, since it does
impact pretty heavily how the user interacts with the dialog...

hrm... as per our recent IRC chat, how about the attached patch? this would
allow the application to tell KMessageBox if the action is "dangerous" and
should therefore be protected by safer defaults, allow applications to use
the "proper" KMessageBox variants, and not alter the current default
behaviour nor add any new methods to KMessageBox...
