kdeinit4 is a
process launcher somewhat similar to the famous init
used for booting UNIX. It executes KDE programs and kdeinit
loadable modules (KLMs) starting them more efficiently.
to launch KDE applications makes starting a typical KDE
application a couple times faster and reduces memory
consumption by a substantial amount.
linked against all libraries a standard KDE application
needs. With this technique, starting an application becomes
much faster because now only the application itself needs to
be linked whereas otherwise both the application as well as
all the libaries it uses need to be linked.

The process name of applications started via kdeinit4 is
"kdeinit4". This problem can be corrected to a degree by changing
the application name as shown by ps. However, applications
like killall will only see kdeinit4 as the process name.
To workaround this, use kdekillall (from kdesdk/scripts)
for applications started via kdeinit4.

If set, tells kdeinit4 that the KDE programs are pre-linked.
(Prelinking is a process that allows you to speed up the process
of dynamic linking.)
If set, tells kdeinit4 that it is running on a KDE desktop.
A standard way to run this program is by simply specifying the
following command at the prompt kdeinit4 program or
probably tons of bugs. Use
