I think that $KDEDIR means different than $KDEHOME on all distros (even on 
Conectiva :).
Just $KDEHOME is seldomly used, so it is not known.

But I agree, that it is better to copy to all existing ~/.kde* directories, 
than only to $KDEHOME. Only that if you use $KDEHOME, then it is more 
generic, 'cause then $KDEHOME can point eg. to ~/.kdetest or something like 
Of course the distros wont use that, and probably few people will, so we can 
stay at your solution...
