I have found that, when a user account has to be terminated and his various 
files distributed between other users' accounts, it is a great simplification 
to run Konqueror as root, with split screen, and select, drag and drop in the 
various targets; doing it by CLI is a pain in the fundament.
          There are few situations that cannot be honourably settled
                 and without loss of time, either by suicide,
             a bag of gold, or by thrusting a despised antagonist
                over the edge of a precipice on a dark night.
