That's completely irrelevant. If you click on a file: URL in KMail then 
KMail executes
  new KRun( url ).
So it's the task of KRun to handle the URL correctly. The same is true 
for the standard file dialog which KMail uses if you select "Save Link 
As..." from the context menu.

The only thing that needs to be changed is adding file: to the list of 
URL protocols KMail recognizes.
