Done that. I'm using KDE and DeadRat's hard-coded "quick launch" toolbar still 
has FireFox and Evolution as the default apps... or it did, but I hand-edited 
it for KMail and Mozilla, but after installing the upgraded KDE, I was back 
to Evolution and FireFox.

Nope... KMail. I can't figure out how to get the darn thing to compose in 
plain text. Under the old KMail, it would default to plain text. For some 
reason, it appears the new KMail defaults to HTML... *sigh* I'm gonna have to 
search the FM to find out how to default to plain, ascii text. It appears 
that when composing a message, you have to select "Formatting" and then 
select it again to force plain-text.

Well, maybe I wasn't specific enough... I want the "quick launch" toolbar to 
launch Mozilla when I click on the "web browser" button and "kmail" when I 
click on the "launchmail" button. And I don't want to have to re-edit those 
again every time there's an update.
