Auke has just told me that there's an initial unit that simply runs "startkde" 
in the v3 tarball.

I did take a look today at startkde and it's... full of old cruft. It needs a 
clean-up anyway, so we might as well do it while helping Auke write the more 
detailed units. (By cruft, I mean code that tests if the environment is 
properly set up -- startkde should be optimised for the case where it is)
