uhhh....Bruce...keep up with the discussion.

let me state this again.  this IS for system-wide bookmarks or first time
user settings.  Either would be acceptable.  

/etc/skel is for per-user defaults yes...however only handles those users who
have not even been created.  This is good, but only handles 1/3 of the problem.

I have submitted a bug to KDE to address the true needs which is a sysytem-wide
bookmarks file that if it exists would be included into the Bookmarks menu 
in the same way the Netscape Bookmarks are.

yes there is a way around it...and that is what this whole exercise was

/etc/skel is not the solution...the solution must end up being in /etc/kde2
