Try this
dcop $(dcopfind -a konqueror-*) KIO::Scheduler reparseSlaveConfiguration http

Another possibility might be to use the output of a script instead of a value 
in the configuration file.
KDE's config system supports that.

Not sure though how often this would be evaluated.

I agree that some kind of connection profile managment would be useful.
Both dial-up connection as well as wireless connections require more than just 
a different IP/route/DNS entry at the system level.

I think I read somewhere that the KDE PIM developers are discussion some kind 
of connection state awareness for applications. Might fit into that.
