There's also quadkonsole , named for I believe its default 2x2 
configuration, but I used to run it in 2x1 config (twinkonsole), and it 
works up to 4x4 (16-konsole) mode, or possibly even higher, if you want.

But once kwin4's drag-to-side half-max feature appeared, I began using it 
with normal konsole instead, letting me do either twin konsoles or a 
single konsole and some other window side by side as desired, and 
eventually I decided that worked better than the twin-konsole mode of 
quad-konsole for my needs, so I eventually uninstalled quad-konsole.

But quad-konsole definitely does what it says on the tin, and that's 
definitely useful for people using multiple konsole windows often enough.
