This is about more than purity, it's about bugs and usability.
kio-locate has the same issue as KFind has: the initial listing may
work fine, but not the subsequent operations on it. E.g. if you delete
a file from a konsole, it won't disappear from the kio-locate or kfind listing
(KDirWatch functionality not integrated).
If you rename a file in that listing, even from Konqueror, it won't update
the view either (because it relies on KDirWatch to work).
I pointed this out to the KFind maintainer, and he said he was going to look
into using KDirWatch in KFind.
However this isn't possible with kio-locate. For kioslaves, it's KDirLister that
handles the KDirWatch stuff, but it can't do that with broken semantics (directories
containing files with absolute paths).
This is why I think it would be better to integrate locate into kfind - this can
mean using kio-locate as backend, why not (although maybe not really necessary).
