Bad idea !

HTTP can send anything (images, sound, text, html,...)
What should Konqueror do if we click on a url like this ? Should he try do display it internally ?

Internet Explorer do this and when it can't display the .gif image it try to 
found html on it. That's the way a famous "virus" make a DoS on the microsoft 
servers using vbscript in a gif (emma.gif or a similar name).

I don't want to see that in KDE :(
