Humm, it might. It's worth some study anyway as I've never looked at
(and don't understand) this part of KDE.

There are some rule capabilities I can see for moving an app to all
desktops, and a quick test seemed to make it work for the app where I
invoked the rule editor. However I'll need to understand is how to
link a rule to a specific key binding to make it work properly. (I
think...) I run lots of Virtualbox VMs but I only want one to operate
this way, and I don't want it this way all the time.

Anyway, thanks for pointing me in an interesting direction. Maybe
others have some ideas that will tie this together.
