I've been gone for awhile. (Kind of still am, I'm on open Wifi right now...) 
and so once normal Internet access resumes I'll be able to help on whatever is 
deemed necessary. I'll even be "on vacation" (though unpacking and doing other 
moving-related errands) which should help with the timeframe.

There actually used to be just such a tool (an online rc-file creator). I'd 
like to think it wouldn't be too hard to whip something up in one of those 
crazy modern Web frameworks or something. An easier thing might be just have 
kdesrc-build do the asking itself if run without an rc-file.

I can see about doing something like that tonight. If anyone has more specific 
suggestions just let me know.
