Over the Christmas holidays i have written an experimental kio_gio/gvfs
bridge IO slave for KDE4:

The kprotocolinfo system has been extended to allow a "multi protocol"
slave (protocol = "*") which receives all calls for protocols not known
to KIO. Furthermore there is a "OverrulesProtocols" parameter to
override some protocols which KIO already provides.


Here is a screenshot of dolphin, listing a folder on a gvfs smb mount:

The patch integrates "kio_giobridge" into kdelibs. It supports
all the major file operations - i was able create text files, rename,
copy them, create folders and open files with kwrite - but of course
this is still very rough and a lot of things are missing...

btw, sometimes kde crashes with this stacktrace. perhaps someone can
help me:
