Rather than making it a multiprotocol slave, why not let it handle one slave 
at a time? The fallback model is going to create a lot of confusion. There is 
no reason to install all of kdebase if you are not going to use it all, most 
distributions split it up by now. That way you could install gio based 
version of SMB or native kio based, users choice. Not the surprise of not 
having installed the native kio based, and then have odd interaction bugs in 
the smb protocol.
