With a little bug-fix my Qt-patch runs the whole KDE-desktop on top of
glib-main-loop without crashing (including Konqueror,...). 

It's here:

Now one should really start analyzing KIO and GNOME-VFS to find out
which one would be the better "Common-VFS". Having looked at them a bit
it seems that the API of KIO provides a subset of functionality of
GNOME-VFS. But on the other hand KIO offers more plugins for different
protocols (AFAIK). So what to do next?

I know this is a controversial issue - but it can't be postponed
