Right, my second thought also was "but what if the user does not run kwin at 
all?".  OTOH, KGlobalAccel should know about that (and return an empty query 
result), so that could work.

And it *does* provide useful information to the user.  I am not sure whether a 
tooltip on that button is the "right" way to do that, but I think without such 
innovative ideas it is hard to increase usability of a desktop environment at 
some point.

I'd say let's make this work, in a not too hackish way.

My 2 cents,
