    You aren't implementing SSL - you're implementing smart card  
support.   But yes, Konqueror uses KIO so changing KIO changes  
konqueror and any other KIO-using application.

    No, you will need to come up with a class structure and interface

   No it does not.  Why are you so against having it there?  it  
shouldn't even be visible to you.  And it's not even there now...
