This would mean, I can "kill" other users multimedia applications by logging
in. I don't think this is desirable.
It is theoretically possible (even today). For example today amarok has a DCOP
interface. You should be able to authenticate yourself to the DCOP session on
the "old" VT, and then issue DCOP calls. This should theoretically also be
possible with some kind of KDEMM.
I have never tried it, and don't know whether it is really this easy. And I
won't answer questions or speculate how this is possible, becuase this
discussion would rather lead to a lengthy IPC/Security discussion.
