       the above essentially describes re-implementing desktop-profiles as
       it applies to kde-specific settings

 	NOTE: depending on exactly what the settings are set in the added config
        set (not applicable for just setting background, splash) setting
        KDEDIRS in startkde it isn't sufficient (as kde apps can be started
        outside a kde-session)

   destkop-profiles implements the hook you want

   idem for the XFCE config stuff (in same patch)
