How to tell konqueror to cache files locally before executing external programs?

Hello everybody,

is there some way to tell konqueror to fetch files from certain protocols and 
store them locally before invoking some external utility?

The contextmenu offers "Open with...", which cannot be used for most 
programs - only a few know how to open "http://"-URLs, and only KDE-specific 
understand "sftp://".

Can I configure kde to cache such files locally before starting the external 
program? Either by protocol (say, "sftp://") or by program (like "only local 
filesystem possible")?

Please keep me CCed, I'm already on too many lists :-)

Thank you very much!
