But looking at it, it seems pretty easy.  You just add new .desktop
files to /usr/share/apps/konsole which provides them to all users, or
if you only want them for yourself, add them to

I've tested this with KDE 3.5.  God knows how it works in KDE 4.x, but
I bet it is something simliar.  I added a mylinux.desktop file to
~/.kde/share/apps/konsole/ and it showed up in the menu of a new
konsole.  Strangely, the Name field in the file didn't affect how it
showed up, but the Comment field did.  That seems backwards, to me.
