I don't get it.
Either the custom URL is purely internal to the application - and then it really doesn't matter
much what it uses, since it can't clash with another application's internal custom URLs -
or the URL is used to actually load the files using KIO, and then we need a normal-looking
protocol to get the associated kioslave, not a ",2004:KMyApplication" protocol.
What do I miss?
