No. The reason for this code is to avoid running the ikws plugin,
so that if you type "kosnole" (typo intended), you don't end up in
a google search for kosnole.

However this API does prevent running any other plugin, and a better
API for this case would be "run all plugins except those". This would
require a change in KURIFilterData, but is the only right way to do this.

(BTW for apidocs, we could have a server-side cgi that does the lookup ;)
