I know about those ways, but they're not what I'm looking for.

Perhaps someone here knows where the list of currently-opened items that 
Restore would use is stored, and maybe I can do something with that. I have 
a stock set of things that I always open after a restart, that's easy. What 
is not so easy is what I had open in addition to these items after a 
restart. My idea is to be able to pick up where I left off after a restart 
but selectively. 

Now that I am getting familiar looking into the source for various KDE 
components, a pointer to which package/source file would get me started.
