I'm on 4.8-rc2, but I don't think that's it as I remember it being there 
for awhile.  Maybe it's an add-on?

Actually, I just checked my /usr/lib64/kde4/ dir looking for potential 
candidate *.so files, did a test rename on a likely candidate, and 
confirmed that's it!  Here on gentoo/amd64 (x86 simply omit the 64 in the 
path, other distros may have it in opt or elsewhere, but this should be 
reasonably standard for the mainline distros):


equery belongs dirfilterplugin.so says:

kde-base/konq-plugins-4.7.97 (/usr/lib64/kde4/dirfilterplugin.so)

So for gentooers it's the konq-plugins package.  For other distros... 
rpmfind.net says konqueror-plugins provides that for some distros 
(OpenSuSE, for instance), konq-plugins (same as gentoo) for others 
(centos/fedora/mandriva/mageia), and/or the larger unsplit metapackages 
kdebase (fedora) or kde-baseapps (fedora rawhide, the 4.8 rcs).

If I knew a site like rpmfind for debian-based distros, I'd check it as 
well, but I don't, so...  But one way or another, that should provide 
enough info to find it in debian-based and other distros as well, since 
most distros provide /some/ way to lookup package based on a filename, 
and most will use something close to the above package names in any case.
