the implementation in playground/libs/webkitkde/kdewebkit/settings/ already 
pulls from khtmlrc.

however, it probably makes sense that different engines will indeed offer 
different options and capabilities and so should be able to define which kcm's 
to load for them.

kdewebkit and khtml could continue to share options as is currently 
implemented, and kdewebkit could either implement it's own config dialogs from 
scratch, use some of the khtml specific ones or some reorg of the current ones 
could be done to separate out generic features from engine-specific ones. the 
latter will probably create a confusing spreading out of options for users, 
though. and config dialogs aren't that hard to make :)
