Locking down the desktop

You lock down the desktop using the documents at 
http://enterprise.kde.org/articles/ especially the articles "KDE Kiosk: 
Battening Down the Hatches" and "KDE: The Korporate Desktop Environment"
Having followed the suggestions there-in, you think well that's it, nobody 
will be able to change their wallpaper and then KDE applications allow users 
to do it, there-by circumventing the corporate standard (well the school 
standard anyway).

Specifically KolourPaint includes options on the file menu to save your image 
as the wallpaper.  Also, if you drag an image from the Konqueror file browser 
to the desktop, a pop up menu appears which includes an open to set the 
wallpaper to the dragged image.

So, my question is, how do we lock down the desktop so that users cannot 
change their wallpaper, taskbar settings etc?  Removing the two 
aforementioned options would be a big help.  Does anyone know how to disable 
these options?
