I like that idea - pretty slick. I thought there was another KDE app/section
that does something like this already....can't remember which.

Too much useless configuration which will only be used by .1% of people imo.
Moreover: it just seems like a workaround for a problem.

Doesn't make any sense. Ideally, the refresh action should not be needed at
all (we aren't windows™)...and in fact, in most cases it isn't. It's bad
enough it has to be in the RMB menu.

Definitely. IIRC, kmenu/lancelot has(?) the same issue.

This doesn't seem useful/sensible, but maybe that's just me.
