You can't translate URLs, but Konqueror and kfile could conceivably 
display a "user-friendly" name there. That's proposal #1.

Proposal #2: it could even go down to the KURL level: there's KURL::url() 
and KURL::prettyURL(). The latter is never supposed to be saved, or 
passed on to applications. And since KProtocolInfo is already used in 
KURL (due to uriMode), we could add a Name information to the .protocol 
file, which would be translated, and returned by prettyURL.

How does that sound?

Just please don't add "My Computer".
