I just thought of this as I'm familiar with the bits of the document I 
use, but as I said, I don't use this functionality so don't know if it's 
included or not...

There's a kde sysadmin's manual that lists stuff like all the 
environmental vars kde uses, if set, and their function, among other 
things (that's the bit I use most so the bit I remember).

It seems to me quite likely that it includes some documentation of this 
type.  Unfortunately, that manual is moving around a bit in the kde site 
reorganization and last time I looked for it, I only found it because I 
knew what I was looking for -- as a general admin on first search I'd 
have had quite some difficulty finding it.

I don't have time ATM to go looking, but later, I'll see this post and 
should be reminded to followup with a link, if I can find it again...
