Good question, and it makes me wonder why we've always just "worked around"
it instead of sending patches to do it correctly. I'm not in a position to
look farther into that right now, so I'll just say that it would seem better
for KDE stuff to use /usr/share/config/$whatever/ for packaged defaults
(IOW, *exactly* what you currently do) with support for overriding those
defaults in $sysconfdir/kde/$whatever/
