Review request for kdelibs.


Some kio protocols support creating symlinks but a change in kio/kio/copyjob.cpp hardcoded symlink creation to only when source and destination protocols are the same. That change was added to fix a problem with ftp protocol creating symlinks instead of copying files (there is a comment in the source code about that). I think instead of forcing source and destination use the same protocol we should test if the destination protocol supports creating symlinks (ftp protocol does not). That would allow kio's like fish and nfs create symlinks. I am also working on some other changes that could use this feature.
