I suspect it's not so much a case of whether KIO is cool but more one
about the lesser known libferris and me not being effective enough in
raising interest in some closer links between ferris and kio.

It might come to pass that me having a kio slave that talks to libferris
as a backend will be the spark that starts things off. Whenever I
finally get to move that from TODO -> DONE.
