One addition from the source:

Empty lines or lines beginning with '#' are ignored, so a line beginning with 
'#' can be useed to add comments to the file.

<para>Each line specifies a tab to open using up to 4 fields specifying how it is to open. 
Fields are delimited with <userinput>;;</userinput> and a field name must have a <userinput>:</userinput> appended.
Empty lines or lines with <userinput>#</userinput> at the beginning are ignored, so you can use line beginning with 
<userinput>#</userinput> to add comments.

<member><userinput>title:</userinput> a name for this tab, tab default if blank or not specified</member>
<member><userinput>workdir:</userinput> working directory, <filename class="directory"> ~</filename> if blank or not specified</member>
<member><userinput>profile:</userinput> a &konsole; profile to use, the default if blank or not specified</member>
<member><userinput>command:</userinput> a command to run</member>
<para>Each line should contain at least one of <userinput>command</userinput> or <userinput>profile</userinput> field.
