It makes sense for kfile too, but not in emails. KMail currently doesn't 
highlight \\server\share entries in emails. If it did, it could just as 
well construct a smb:// URL. Emails in HTML should contain file://, which 
will be converted when clicked.

My point is: I don't think KURL is the right place for that. Those things 
aren't URLs and aren't filenames either. Next, we'll want to 
convert //server/share/ to smb:// as well, whereas that's a completely 
valid path.
