Thank you.  I'm headed to work ATM, but plan to look into that script, 
likely when I get home.  I had thought something like that might work, 
but don't know enough about such scripts yet to know how to code it 
myself.  This extra example, in addition to what kde already ships and 
perhaps others on kdelook, should help in that regard as well.
