KDE3 Profile Migration Script

From: Darrell Anderson <humanreadable@...>

In my patched startkde script (bug report 675) I include code to automatically migrate a user's existing KDE3 profile directory.

I'm thinking perhaps I move that code to a separate script, say $PREFIX/bin/migratekde3, and source that script in startkde.

That would allow admins and users to run the script as they please and separate maintenance for us. By moving to a separate script we all can test more easily and improve that script without directly impacting startkde. As a separate script testing could be performed in any desktop environment and not just TDE.

Opinions? Yays? Nays?
