Maybe I'm wrong, but I think this is simply not implemented.

I mean, looking into the code of the txt kfile plugin, it opens a file (using 
QFile) to read the metadata. This is similarly done in the HOWTO at

but doesn't this mean, I can _never_ get meta data from a URL which addresses 
a non-local file ?

If so, do I have to use KIO::get() or something ?
