Actually I just realized that we can't do it per mimetype since the plugins want to know 
the url they're working on; for "compress as foo.zip", for instance.

Hmm. I can't see how the plugins would be particularly slower than the rest of the popupmenu-setup
code, they do the same kind of thing: creating actions and plugging them.
Although arkplugin.cpp does a new KConfig each time which could easily be
changed to a kstatic-deleted static KConfig * (but you said kconfig was fast).

Anyway you gave percentages in one mail and milliseconds in the next one
so I'm a bit confused with the timing data :)
