Sorry, I updated your script by my own, which I have previously successfully 
tested with the recently added applications. In this is addressed more 
renaming than in your initial script. Is located in 
experimental/kde-tde/convert_existing_kde3_app_to_tde

François, if you're not against it, I'll take care of integrating into GIT 
applications on which you have worked.
