You should check with maelcum (Andreas Hartmetz), he's working on similar 
things I think (and not sure he's reading this). Andreas?

I object to the job.cpp changes for the reasons indicated in the earlier 
thread about this (it would potentially deadlock file-management operations 
like KIO::file_copy), so I'm glad you're taking these out.
We still need to find a solution for the "copying lots of files" and "connecting
to FTP servers multiple times", but it seems this needs to be done at a higher 
level than your changes, so your changes are really only for webbrowsing. But 
then, was there really a problem of "too many connections to the same server" 
in the case of webbrowsing?
I thought khtml's own scheduler (loader) took care of that; dunno about 
kdewebkit though.
