Consider data: URLs local in KIO::AccessManager
Review Request #101140 - Created April 16, 2011 and submitted
Currently KIO::AccessManager blocks retrieval of embedded data: URLs if external references are disabled. This does not match the behavior in KHTML and breaks for example the display of sender photos/logos in KMail (which uses kdewebkit).
Hmm... did not know KUrl::protocol() already returned a lower case text. And it is probably true the file protocol might be more previlant when access to external content is disallowed. Well then go ahead... Do not forget to backport or forward port depending on how you work :)
