 Ok, wasn't that difficult, kdeinit, kded and klauncher take --new-startup, 
which makes them execute either the old or new code path (well-visible in the 
nowhitespace version of the patch). I simply ignored i18n() for the added 
KCmdLineArg's as they're internal anyway. New kdebase obviously will require 
new kdelibs. Okay now?
