How can this be considered the right thing to do?

KDEHOME defaults to $HOME/.kde if not set

Checking for whether $HOME/.kde4 exists when KDE is in version 4 could be 
considered as a fallback when $KDEHOME is empty and $HOME/.kde does *not* 

The very moment either $KDEHOME is set or $HOME/.kde exists than that path is 
the only correct choice.
