Bob the Angry flower says: "WRONG WRONG WRONG WRONG WHERE DID YOU LEARN
Dudes, having a registry is *bad*. You know, we already have KConfEdit -
KWrite, vim, KVim, whatever.
I like the "defaults in one place" thing. The registry idea I don't
like, and IMHO that entire path is wrong, bad, evil, fucked-up and bad.
