Hi, does anyone know if KDE4 will include the KIO Fuse?

In my opinion this could be one of the MOST important features for a good 
desktop: the possibility of using all the power of the kioslaves in any KDE 
or not KDE app.

Note that a today's common problem is when the user access to a Samba resource 
via smb kioslave and open a .odt file with OpenOffice. Because OpenOffice (as 
any not KDE app) doesn't allow kioslaves it copies the file in /tmp and uses 
it, so when the user wants to modify the file he saves it in his local /tmp 
(that is terribly annoying), and he needs to move it to the server and 
replace the old one.

Is it really the Linux power we want to show to the world???
Then the response will be very easy: why in Windows is it too easy???

But using KIO Fuse all the apps can acces to the kioslaves because FUSE mount 
the resources in user level in a transparent mode for the apps, so the 
problem dissapears.

Does anyone know something new about it for KDE4?
