I love KIO, but - please, please, please - throw it away!

It's a "proprietary" system just for a minority of applications. It's
an obstackle for getting third party applications like,
mozilla or Qt-only to use full fledged network transparent
file-management. It's an obstackle for running KDE applications on
Gnome or Gnome applications on KDE. It's not that exciting from design
and capabilites anymore (compared to other options). It's a dead dog.

Sorry for repeating this - or a similar statement - once a year. I
really don't want to damage KDE. Just the opposite.
