They are provided/installed by Digikam. But kioslaves are a KDE feature and 
are therefore searched for only on your KDE location (normally /usr).

Digikam has no way to pick which one is used: it gets the same kioslave you 
would get if you would type "digikamalbums:/" in Konqueror (which is the one 
installed at the same location as core KDE).

Correct. Digikam kioslaves are installed and removed with digikam packages.

I would suspect yes (as I do not recall any DB change between 0.10.x and 
1.0.x), but I would rather see Marcel or Gilles confirm.
