kbookmarkmerger - A program for merging a given set of bookmarks into
   the user's list of bookmarks.


   kbookmarkmerger [Qt Options...] [KDE Options...] {directory}


   kbookmarkmerger is a program for merging a given set of bookmarks into
   the user's set of bookmarks; if the user doesn't have any bookmarks
   created yet, a new bookmark list is created and the given bookmarks are
   inserted into it. While doing this, kbookmarkmerger keeps track of
   which files were merged in a previous run already, so no bookmark will
   get installed to the user's bookmarks more than once. In case KDE is
   running while kbookmarkmerger is executed, the KDE bookmark subsystem
   will be informed of any changes to the user's bookmarks, so that all
   applications accessing that information (i.e.  Konqueror) will pick the
   changes up instantly.

   The traditionally used approach to achieve something like this was to
   use carefully crafted skeleton home directories when creating a new
   user account, to provide the user with a standard set of bookmarks. The
   problem with this approach is that after the user account has been
   created, no new bookmarks can be propagated.

   This mechanism is useful for system administrators who want to
   propagate a bookmark pointing to a certain document (for instance,
   important notes about the system) to all users. Distributors might find
   it useful as well, for instance by augmenting the software packages
   they supply with bookmark files which kbookmarkmerger merges into the
   user's bookmark list when the package is installed. That way,
   documentation shipped with a software package is easily and visibly
   accessible right after the package has been installed.

   The only parameter required by kbookmarkmerger is the name of a
   directory which shall be scanned for bookmark files. All files in the
   given directory will be considered for being merged into the user's
   setup. The files in the given directory should be valid XBEL files.


   Konqueror manual[1]


       joe@hal9000:~> kbookmarkmerger /usr/local/extra-bookmarks

   Merges all bookmark files stored in /usr/local/extra-bookmarks into
   joe's list of bookmarks.


       XBEL specification[2]


   When determining whether a given bookmark file has been merged into the
   user's bookmarks already or not, kbookmarkmerger merely looks at the
   filename of the bookmark file - the contents are not checked at all.
   This means that changing a bookmark file which was already merged into
   a user's bookmarks will not trigger merging it once again.

   Also note that in case a user modifies a bookmark which was merged into
   his setup, the original bookmark file will be left unmodified.
