This approach by far is the most sane option, since KDE's kio is a core 
technology to the entire desktop. Instead of a bridge, more of a shared 
back-end. Which really, is what Aaron and others were saying: make the 
backend of the vfs layer use the same file formats, etc. and then work your 
way up the stack, instead of the other way around and generally pissing off 
users and developers with a hugh change overnight.
