Looks ok. Please use "const QStringList&" for the argument to the new method,
and a ConstIterator instead of Iterator in its implementation.

kio/global.cpp might need a similar fix, but that's another story.

OTOH one might wonder why anyone needs KMountPoint to show supermount-ed
directories. Those don't need Type=Device .desktop files to be mounted/unmounted,
and KMountPoint is mostly used in the property dialog for device .desktop files, no?
(no objection to the patch, just wondering where the class is used)
