Konqueror servicemenus should probably still work, but I couldn't say for sure 
since I don't really use any.

smb:/ and friends aren't actually related to konqueror or dolphin; most KDE 
apps can use those protocols.

KIO definitely isn't going anay.

Well, much of that had to do with the overhaul and complete rewriting of the 
file-browsing component, so features weren't removed intentionally but rather 
because they hadn't been rewritten yet.  Now that the tree view is back, I 
can't think of anything I'm missing from konqueror 3.5 off the top of my head.
