How is that different from normal operations?  I have to use the configuration 
dialog in KMail (Kontact) to configure my email client and the one in 
Konqueror for that app and the one in Xchat for that app, etc., etc., etc., 

You *do not have* to use kcontrol every day.  I use KDE as my desktop and I 
only look at kcontrol about once a month because I *want* to change 
something.  It wouldn't even be that frequently if it weren't for the nature 
of my profession (and of my nature, I'll admit :) ).

Interesting analogy.  Of course, I've never driven a Fort, though I've stood 
on a couple of walls :) .
