But then the question becomes:
- Would it be desirable to have such an QPA?
- Even if the QPA is there, would that be useful for KIO? Or is KIO
such a big beast that no QPA is good enough?

Now lets assume the above questions are answered with yes and yes. How
difficult would it be to make such a QPA? Or is this so difficult that
it would be "Qt 6" material?
