I dont use KDE. I think there was a thread earlier that a KDE native
app for this was going to be in KDE 4.2.  I would not bugzilla this, I
would wait for a KDE SIG member to chime in and give a status update
as to where upstream development stands.

the cmdline tools are not aimed at the casual user..but there are
sysadmins out there who still deal with multi-users system...or even
kiosks...by remote shell login. I mention the commandline tools
specifically as a shout out for those people.  There is a consistent
tension between the needs of casual users who admin their own machines
and admins who do a lot of shell terminal based system administration.
