I will see what I can do....

The devtools entry is a special one created at compile time. When you 
'make install' Qtopia, .desktop file(s) get read and the information 
gets stored in the database, as opposed to being on the filesystem.

There is a semi-ported terminal in the opieII sources. It needs much 
work (ie.e compiles but does not run). Or, probably a better option, is 
taking the kde konsole sources, and porting them to Qt/Qtopia only. This 
is what Trolltech did for the embeddedkonsole in the Qtopia version 1 & 2.
