Now with the understanding that I haven't so much as looked at this, something 
that does this type of thing (monitoring free space on a partition) would be 
very useful for /var/tmp as well, since filling up the /var/tmp partition 
apparently plays very poorly with KPixmapCache (the obvious code paths I look 
at in KPixmapCache do check for proper file open and resize results, so I have 
no quick fix for that).

So, it would be nice if this could be easily extended to checking other 
partitions (even if it's just a command line or kconfig option with no GUI).
