I read about some Plasma / KDE developers wanting to go FUSE way tough,
cause KIO is Plasma/KDE only and other applications like LibreOffice do
not understand it.
In the end it is all about non blocking I/O on network filesystems.
Also: Is there an NFS kio slave? I think there is only a CIFS one. In
addition to File in shell (fish://) or SFTP (sftp://) and all the other
non traditional network filesystem ones.
