Actually a good idea, but IIRC Konqueror starts the named program everytime it 
downloads a _file_. Say, you want to see a html-page with 10 images,  the 
program is executed _11_ times! May be ok for a dial up (modem) link, but not 
for a high speed connection!

I tried to change proxy via DCOP, but couldn't manage that all open konquerors 
use the changed setting.
