Update: Michael reviewed the 3 patches and they are merged now. The kioslave
work, the HTML looks correct and matches for example the output of kio_man,
but when loaded into Konqueror the styles and the other images (which comes
from other kioslaves, like help:/) are not shown. If the generated page is
saved and the file is loaded, they are shown. I'm puzzled and I'm not sure
where the problem is, probably not on the kioslave side.

So, I'm open to ideas: if you think that it's fine as it is (i.e. you can show
something, which is more than the current useless kio which only works for
kdelibs4 applications or through kioclient(4)), then I can merge frameworks
into master.

If you are going to test this, you need to force KHTML, as WebEnginePart does
not work with the kio_*, see:
