Absolutely. I was already planning to implement something like this, but am 
not sure how I could tell konqi to run something like "kfmclient exec 

As I don't have much experience in KDE developing, can you give me a hint how 
this could be implemented, e.g. as a standalone KDE-app, some kind of plugin, 
etc. ?

Also I see currently the problem, that the metadata is not generated when I 
open the Property Dialog on a smb:// or a ftp:// file (has nothing to do with 
my kfile_lnk plugin, it also does not work with e.g. .txt files, even though 
I have activated smb +ftp previews). Any ideas about that ?
