Configuring KDE to open different types of files requires 
some magic that I don't fully understand. Nevertheless, I 
find that if I create a shell script with executable 
permissions then "kfmclient exec" will run that script, 
whereas "kfmclient openURL" will ask whether I want to run 
it first. That said, "kfmclient exec" probably has closer 
semantics to the win32-supported os.startfile function. 
I've uploaded a new version of the module which returns 
the process identifier, along with some exception handling 
around os.startfile.
