I meant in the case that KDE3's 'KDEHOME' is not the same as for the
active KDE4 session. (Which I think isn't horribly uncommon using
pure-distro KDE, especially if they are still shipping some KDE3 apps,
Ick. One-shot import from 'actual' $KDEHOME, guessing that there is KDE3
config there, is... specialized. (As in, not something I'm hugely
inclined to have a button for.)

That (adding it to the generic help) sounds fine. Along with several
other things. I wish I knew where that doc was, if it exists :-).
(Oh, hey, the "help" button does something. It shows the KDE3 era doc.
Hmm... Where or where is that doc that I might edit it? (Serious
question, I don't know.)

Seemed fine, no worries. Sorry for the delay, was sitting on this until
I had more time to read over it.
