Maybe there could be a global option that allows someone to change
drkonqi's behavior from "user" to "developer".  In the later case it
shows more advanced developer-specific information.  It might be
possible to have it part of kdebugdialog, have a separate
configuration program like kdebugdialog for drkonqi, or just have a
hidden option somewhere.
