KIO is an example of a careful multithreaded design. But kioslaves like
'smb' could be substituted with a generic local file system (file://)
kioslave operating with FUSE-mounted directories. If we do not want to
implement a network protocol for KIO and FUSE separately than FUSE
implementation is preferable because it also allows non-KIO applications
to operate over the network and no rewrite is required.
