should KFileItemActions be a QObject to ease in memory management and/or make 
it possible to introduce signals/slots in future if needed/desired?

+    KAction* preferredOpenWithAction(const QString& traderConstraint);

should be const? or does this alter the object in some way that is 
visible/relevant to the consumer? looking at the code it doesn't seem so?

would it make sense to have a version of setItemListProperties that takes a 
const KFileItemList& so that code using this wouldn't necessarily need to use 

for that matter, does KFileItemListProperties even need to be a public class 
at this time, or could it be a private class internal to libkio used by 

btw, is this code supposed to conform to the kdelibs coding style? if so,  i 
suppose that clean up needs to be done ...

other than those thoughts, the API looks nice imo.
