Need washrag to remove egg on face.  At the time I wrote it there was a 
battle going on as some distro's use dcop, and some dbus. It appears 
that in debian, dcop won that particular war, so thats what I'm using, 
and its coded like this:

if [[ ${Method} = 'dbus' ]]
        Cmd="/usr/bin/qdbus org.kde.kmail /KMail org.kde.kmail.kmail.checkMail"
if [[ ${Method} = 'dcop' ]]
#or for dcop, use:
        Cmd="/opt/trinity/bin/dcop kmail KMailIface checkMail"
[... skip some other alternative hpusekeeping options]
                       if test "${InMail}" = "gene"

So thats the extent of my dcop training. The manpage for dcop is so 
incomplete its worthless. Hardly a full screenfull of very generalized 

What dcop can do for|to kmail should be in the kmail handbook, but there 
seems to not even be the word dcop.  Where can I access what will fix 
that lack?
