Not yet owning a DSLR, but looking seriously at the K100D, I wonder if a piece of double sided tape stuck anywhere inside the body where it won't cause a problem, would act as a 'magnet' for floating around dust so that it never gets to settle on the sensor.

Forget it, most 'free space' inside is taken up by the swinging action of the mirror. Even if you found somewhere to stick it,just how would you remove it without leaving any debris behind or with causing any damage.

Leave the inside mechanism alone would be my advise; puff away any sensor debris.

I was told by Kennedy's that the sensor in the k100d is a new sensor, not the same one in the DS/DL models.

Alot of the new dslr that come out have "dust-removal" technology. The bad thing about this is that it extedns there start up time. I was wondering because the k100d has sr, and the sensor moves to counter other movement... does this mean that in its movement it shakes of dust. Or is this movement too minimal. I know it sounds dumb but it might work. Thx

Nope. The SR movement is simply too small in frequency and force to get rid of the dust. But the solution to the dust problem is trivial, just use air-blower for large particles and then use SensorSwap kit to clean. It's easy and a clean can last for months, believe me.

I haven't cleaned my K100D yet. Cleaning a floating/movable CCD sensor maybe more difficult..

If dust really matters, wait for the K10D, it is "confirmed" that it has a innovative air sucking pump design which removes the dust out of the camera body! (not just shaking off):-
