Ok, I did do that, but I guess the better question would be: Am I supposed to 
be able to override things locally, or will konqueror only use the one file? 
What I did originally was copy the system wide file locally, removed 
everything except for the the items I wanted to change. In this case, since 
is was just an experiment, I wanted to place a tearoff option in the Location 
menu. When I did that the menus and toolbars in konqueror were hosed (in the 
wrong spot, missing options, etc...). So am I not supposed to be able to 
override certain things locally?
