SFTP and therefore kio_sftp requires that the remote sshd is configured to allow SFTP, while kio_fish just requires a "normal" SSH login, i.e. shell. Since SFTP is specifically designed for file operation over SSH it should definitely be preferred, but there might be people needing FISH. I am also not sure if kio_fish has been dropped for KDE4 or just not ported yet by its maintainer. As for KDE_FORK_SLAVES, it means that applications will fork IO slaves rather than requesting them from KLauncher, thus disabling sharing them between applications. It is useful for debugging since the slave becomes a child process of the application one is debugging rather then being a process cooperating with it, but I don't think it makes sense as a general policy.
