Excellent. I'll have to dig into this to see how much of libferris'
metadata I can expose for read/write if it was a kio slave.

I'm thinking about metadata like KFileMetaInfo can offer: a collection
of key-value pairs each of which has schema data associated. The schema
for KFileMetaInfoItem::properties() gives the primary type related stuff
I'm thinking about.
