haha, so you want to make an already large enough configuration dialog even 
bigger (and less usable, in all likelihood) by putting more stuff there?
Surely you can come up with a better solution that this, because this one just 
won't fly. Right now, the best thing that i can think of would be a menu 
entry in konqueror's settings dialog that says 'Configure <ioslave>' and it 
runs 'kcmshell <ioslave kcm name>' But I still don't think that putting 
ioslave configuration in konqueror is a good idea.
