konq profiles are nowhere near powerful enough for this in their current 
state. they are very useful (i've set up a few custom ones for my own usage in 
the past) but it would need a lot of additional work to make it possible to 
achieve the same kind of results that rekonq is delivering. 

konq is much more flexible than rekonq because of profiles, and it really 
highlights the difference in design concept between the two apps: konq is a 
power tool that sacrifices usability for flexibility and integration 
capabilities, rekonq is trying to do one thing and do it well.
