The kmenu is a special menu though. I think it is also recognized as such by 
normal users. So it is IMHO ok that the kmenu has different and advanced 
features compared to a normal popup menu (say a context menu in konqui).

One could of course use a listview for the search feature in the kmenu to 
present the results to the user. A listview would not be confused with a 
normal popup by the user. But I think the menu would get really ugly if we 
display suddenly a listview during searching....
