What are the names of the variables passed to konqueror's email client?

Having just got a Gmail account I thought i'd make a Linux port of Gmailto, which associates all mailto links with Gmail, opening the Gmail compose window.

My program works fine with Mozilla and Firefox, using mozex to allow the user to choose what program to associate mail with. I easily found the variables passed (%s for subject, %a for email-to, etc) to the given program, allowing you to form a command to be executed whenever the mailto link is clicked.

I'm trying to do the same thing with konqueror and have found how to change the email client at System > Configuration > Configure KDE > components > component chooser, but I have no idea of the names of the variables for subject, CC, to, etc.

Are they the same as for mozex, or does anyone know what they are or where I could find them out?
