Hmm, good point. Sounds like something that should be added to Qt :-). (In
fact, if NWI[1] happens it will almost *need* to be added; NWI makes
application cloning a lot more important.)

The *WM* will get to that later :-D.

If NWI (or even just tabbed WM) takes off, *I* am going to start harping at you
to make Konsole process-per-tab ;-). Tab handling at that point will be a WM
thing, and you can use DBUS to communicate settings changes that you want

Alternatively you can work with konq* to build an embedding container a la
Chrome, so you have one process per tab plus a helper application managing the
tabs (probably via xembed). Of course you need a way then to recover from the
helper crashing, but at least a tab crash will only take out that tab.

(* Why work with konq? Code re-use; I think konq may already have plans to work
on something like this, and even if not, it's still something konq should do.
Also building the helper to be flexible from the start would probably help
moving it over to NWI in the future. Bonus points for coming up with a solution
where konq and konsole can exist in the same container.)
