Hmm, as far as I can see the position attribute doesn't work at all. At
least with kate, I always get the main toolbar on top, not on bottom
when putting the position="bottom" attribute into the xmlgui file.
The other thing is that the location is stored in the applications
config file, not the xmlgui-file in $HOME/.kde/share, but that can
actually be considered good, because it means the user-chosen toolbar
position won't be overriden on the next xmlgui-file update (which
usually has a larger version and hence replaces the xmlgui file in the
Green light in A.M. for new projects. Red light in P.M. for traffic tickets.
