We are talking about two different things here. I am aware that
editing in /etc/skel/ will only affect new users, and was talking
about new users. You are on the other hand talk about existing users.

Did you actually test this? I tried, and it did not work when I did.
This is why I ended up adding this file to every new users profile

And my point is that I was unable to find a way that worked by
specifying a global setting for all users, and thus believe using the
file in /etc/skel/ is the only way to get the mediaapplet added to
every new users desktop.

Unless you have tested and found a way to get this working, I believe
Debian is equally broken as Debian Edu when it comes to adding extra
applets to the kde panel for all users.
Do you have a tested and working patch for the debian-edu-config
package to implemnt your proposal? I would love to get rid of the
file in /etc/skel/, as long as the media applet still start for all
