Not sure... as Michael pointed out the given UDSEntry can come from a 
completely different URL. In this case it can be seen as creating a brand new 

update/refresh could be used for something stating again the URL and loading 
the resulting UDSEntry.

I tend to dislike assign, since I'd expect assigning from a KFileItem.

load or setData look like good choices...
I propose setEntry as an alternative choice though.
