Yes! I'm assuming a plasmoid to do something like:

"Hey, I'll start development here, so start KDevelop, git-cola, 
Konqueror to Qt/KDE docs, whatever else in a new plasma 
session/desktop (possibly with different KWin rules for 
placement/sizing/whatever than otherwise exist)"

at the click of a button would be possible with this (session 
micro-manager? micro-session manager?). Contextual hints for 
KWin rules would be nice as well, though that's another wishlist 
item. Would be nice :) .
