This is a proposal to address an issue that was discussed on the kfm-devel mailing list. The problem was that even some of the greatest KIO Slaves offered by KDE are quite unknown. Many users have no idea how to use them because it requires them to enter special URL's in the location bar, like fish:// audiocd:/ or man:/.
This proposal attempts to make these KIO slaves accessible by adding a special KIO Slave called the locations slave. This locations slave is accessible by typing 'locations:/' in the location bar. It offers access to some of the most important available KIO slaves and presents them in a well organized directory structure.
The screenshots show what it could look like to browse the locations slave. Note that the user's home directory is one of the available locations.
Ideally, the locations KIO slave should replace 'file:/home/user' as the default default location of Konqueror's file browsing profile. The home directory will be one click away, but so are many other powerful KIO slaves..
There is no code, it's just a proposal.
