Please do not do that. A DNS query does not, for the better or worse, belong
at the level where the shorturi filter plugin is used. The KURIFilterPlugin
is a high level plugin and is not part of KIO sub-system. I guess this is my
fault since there exists a workaround for this issue, a regexp based
matching, but it does not have a configuration GUI yet. It also suffers from
one minor bug due to the fact that it is not easy to store regexp matches as
keys using KConfig. Anyways, I am in the process of fixing this right now.
I plan to make it possible to a protocol for any "shorturi". I will see what
I can do about the GUI...
