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.
