Probably a misunderstanding but the bug is only effecting usage of the I/O 
abstraction framework KIO due to some of its backends either not being fully 
implemented or not cooperating correctly.

Depending on what your application will be doing you might not need that kind 
of functionality.

If you are dealing with your own file format you might even consider embedding 
important time information within the files, e.g. like this is done for vcard, 
ical, jpeg, etc.
