Just would like to add that apparently there's a kio fuse fs, so the 
problem is mitigated. 
The upside to this method (although it looks non-trivial to set up), is 
that you don't actually need application or library support.


Actually, Amarok could probably add transparent support later by 
integrating more tightly with the fuse implementation (i.e. automounting 
the kio targets as necessary).  Actually a truly slick feature would be 
that you could actually configure fuse plugins from Amarok and have it 
access those file systems transparently (perhaps provide a mountpoint in 
some private tmpfs).
