How about using 4 char sequences encoded as an int32?

 cost int myDebugArea = 'konq';
 kdDebug(myDebugArea) << ...

(just have to get rid of the compiler warning).

There *could* be a global registry a la IANA at kde.org but even without
an registration conflicts are less likely and the numbers would still have
some naming converted back to a string.
