Nay. 'Port it' is the KDE team's own words and it is true. kiosktool 
will not work with KDE4. If you could check the kiosktool mailing list, 
there was a post to that effect. If requires 'porting' to work with 
KDE4. Just like a lot of KDE3.x apps will need porting to work in KDE4 
(minimum switching qt toolkit version)
