The metainfo kioslave uses QDataStream to serialize data and transfer it to
the app. And the jpeg kfile-plugin actually can generate a QImage that gets
wrapped in a QVariant which then is put into the QDataStream. I guess that
wouldn't be a problem, or is there any chance that a kioslave will run on
another Qt version than the app it talks to?
I think the thumbnail kioslave is similar.
