Konqueror and enabling write access for the Kate KPart

In Konqueror, I can preview a text file using an embedded advanced editor (ie. a Kate KPart). However, the file is read-only. Whilst this makes sense most of the time, I was wondering if there were an option to change this.

Often I find myself wanting to change a file, and it would be more convinient to do this in an embedded editor, rather than loading up a new editor program just to change a line or two.

Is there an option to enable write-access for the embedded Kate editor in Konqueror? Or would I have to edit the source?

RE: Konqueror and enabling write access for the Kate KPart

Konqueror supports readonly KParts, you'll probably have to hack it's source to allow ReadWrite parts as well. Can't think of anthing else right now.
