Ok, makes the whole stuff a bit more typing work though as I only carry
around a KUrl. Thats why I asked actually, to find an easy way to use
the EnvironmentFile so I don't have to type

Uhm, prettyUrl()? I think either url() or path() (If I only support
local filepaths) is better, as prettyUrl is intended for user display,
not for programatic usage.

Btw: Haven't seen any replies from you in the mails, are you coming?


If you learn one useless thing every day, in a single year you'll learn
365 useless things.
