I think this makes no sense, it should be system:/home/ then, i.e. don't 
change the protocol at all (even if more than one ioslave is involved). I 
have no idea if kio allows that but from a logical point of view this makes 
much more sense to me.

"http:", "ftp:" and "mailto:" aren't translated either, maybe because URLs are 
system stuff which should be hidden or at least unimportant for normal users.
