As it stands we start a thread for each lookup right now which in of itself is already too expensive for my taste. Hence, I will have to think of some other way to avoid the even worse solution of creating a local even loop.

That is because the two KUriFilterPlugins that use it set a timeout value of that duration. Otherwise, that code path should not be encountered at all!
