I have no clue about the specifics of the original idea, just saying how it 
could be ;)

BTW, on of the free DEs (forgot which one) had the standard win-like 
taskbar, and on Alt+Space (I encountered it by accident) it would replace 
the taskbar with a 'run' text field. I liked it, but it was no krunner - 
simple shell exec.

Obvious... obvious... hmh... run two plasma instances at all times so that 
when one crashes, the other is already there and the user doesn't notice?
