I would think that it should try to find a KIO slave first, and fall back on
GVFS if absent. In a similar vein, if such a bridge were also written to use
KIO slaves in Gnome, I would expect they would prefer the GVFS slaves and
fall back on ours.
Why would anyone would want a KDE application to prefer a GVFS slave over a
KIO one? No matter how good the bridge it would still not be as efficient as
a native KIO one.
