Well I tend to look at this from the view of the end user, they want to be 
able to configure the app... now if we want to force them to use the text 
editor, fine, lets go that route, but if they want to use a sane consistent 
GUI, then imho KAutoconfig is the best solution i have seen yet.

Oh i didnt notice that one burried in there!  Cool... i guess that solves the 
combo box issues, then.  I was more asking for KDCOPWidgetProxy than for 
Kautoconfig, but if we think this is the best approach for both let go that 
route and keep as many people happy as possible.
