Don't know either. I thought it might be in kdelibs, activated with a
configure switch. But i agree that for the beginning it's better to put
it in a separate package (can someone please help me to create such a
package, because i'm rather new to this cmake stuff).

Sure. I think it's not important to discuss the final location of the
kio_giobridge slave at the moment. Time will tell.

Yeah. And they don't break the API. But there are more changes required,
because i would like to populate the "Places" panel with the
drives/volumes listed by GIO (the network mounts). I have no idea
where/how the "places" are generated at the moment. I guess it's not by
an IO-slave. Or perhaps just changing the "remote:" handler? Don't know
where that's defined....
