Which is exactly why it'd be nice if they'd help develop KIO further (for 
instance helping to abstract it to make it more easily generalized) instead 
of going to an entirely new system and needing to rewrite everything again.  
That was my point.  During the last two years with KDE4 under development 
would have been the perfect time to do this, instead of spending that time 
writing something completely new.
