Exactly. Just suggest it for KDE4 if you want this stuff, it doesn't require
your Qt hacks.

The odd thing ofcourse is that KDE has absolutly no reason to do this. KIO is
much more widely supported and has more protocols than GNOME-VFS. It would
make much more sense for GNOME to support KIO, which if your claim of
GNOME-VFS being a superset is correct, also should be easy.
Currently the strategy for getting a consistent desktop from the KDE side
though is to mount KIO-slaves in the kernel. Which is also a feature
GNOME-VFS doesnt have.
