Regarding the kde-look problem, just like DRM makes it harder to access
the desired content so does hiding the desired image file behind 10 pages
of advertisements and unrelated content.  Perhaps the best solution is to
make it easy (automatic) for those authors who provide a direct link
and/or host the image file on kde-look, and if the utility detects an HTML
page or other non-image and non-compressed file then it asks the user if
he/she would like to open a browser session?  Personally I'd make the
dialog a bit scary as we really have no idea what content is on the remote
site; at minimum it should ask if the user would like to browse to the
given URL (and show it).
