All this parsing code is in KMountPoint already.

I agree with Coolo, we don't want 10 kio_file instances monitoring the mountpoints.
Better do this as part of the mimetype checking, if at all (KMimeType::findByUrl
for instance, which is called by kfileitem during mimetype resolution).

PS: Gerold, no shouting (all-caps) please.
