Thanks for your input. So the answer is no then, for now? If you are working 
on a "runner" which will open sessions in the same way as it is already doing 
for kate then that is a good solution. In my installation, krunner does not 
propose to open "session manager" for kdevelop when I write kdev in the 
search, but that is perhaps the fault of the people compiling my distribution? 
Essentially I guess it would only be a second .desktop file which adds --ps to 
the arguments..?
