Securing KDE Sessions

    I've searched around quite a bit, and I really can't find an answer 
for what I'm trying to do.  I'm running linux in a multi user 
environment, and I'm looking to lock down the kde desktop and prevent 
user customization.  How does one go about securing sessions in KDE?  
I'd like to configure a default session, and remove all customization 
options for users.  Ultimately, I'm look to remove the shutdown options 
from the confirmation dialog that comes up when a user goes to log out.  
I know how to do it on a per user basis, and I can do it globally, but I 
don't know how to prevent users from changing this in their session.  
Also, how does one go about removing all customization of a users session?
