Well, that will happen in all UNIX based systems. There is no "device" 
knowledge. You only know about folders where you mount devices.

I knew it and I am not a Konqueror developer. This widget can (should?) also 
be used in applications that are exclusively for showing the percentage used 
of each device in the system (e.g. kdf...).

Apart from that, the discussion if that label/widget should be there is a very 
different discussion. Here we were discussing on changing that label for this 
widget (while this widget can be commonly used in other places where this 
kind of information is shown: dolphin statusbar, kdf (as said before)...). 
So, summing up: the discussion "is that label correctly placed there?" 
correponds to another thread, since that label was already there and I just 
developed this widget to show this information in a more visual way.
