KDED startup services overview?

I was wondering, is there a tutorial/overview about the various "KDE startup services", and what they do? I'd like to know which services I can disable.

I have the following listed:
- DNS-SD Services Watcher
- KDED drive watcher
- KDED Media manager
- KDED Remote Base URL Notifier
- KDED System Base URL Notifier
- KDE Internet Daemon
- KDE Write Daemon
- KMilo
- Network Status Daemon

You can disble them all if you want, they are all just extra 'fluff' to make things easier and more convienant from within KDE.

I don't know of any docs, but if you open the control panel and check out 'kde components -> service manager' there are brief descriptions of what each does...

The kded media manager causes a lot of I/O on the hard disk with me. Anyone else having the same? It's pretty annoying. Next to the lack of description/docs about it.
