What are you talking about? cervisia is bound to inode/directory and if the
user switched the views to use cervisia, he'll get an error when he switches
directories to a non-CVS dir. But that's a general konqueror/cervisia problem.
What has it to do with KIO protocols? You thought, cervisia had a reb:// too?
Then I can tell you that it doesn't.
