Hello! For some projects I'd need some kind of "service" being able to mount resources like SMB shares, FTP, SFTP etc...

I read the code of smb4k and it seems to do exactly what I need: using KAuth and mounting to some specific path. But this seems a bit tied to the specific application and only supporting SMB. What I'd need is some kind of service, a bit like udisks, in order to mount on request from other processes. On IRC someone told me something like this may already be into Plasma: is there someone able to provide more info?
Thanks!

Hi Luca,
as far as I know we only have KIO for that kind of job.

Hmm, as I understand it, Luca wants "something that can be passed also to non-KIO applications". Let me take the opportunity to mention https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=75324, then I'll go away. :)
