That's all I could figure out you might mean (and it fits into the sense
of "graft" (and "prune") I knew from 15 years go), but I still don't see
Konq doing that synching automatically, like some stand-alone FTP apps
will do, and it was about that example that I asked the poster who
claimed Konq would do anything a dedicated FTP client would to.  He
admitted that that claim had been an exaggeration.
