Dolphin currently doesn‘t support creating or editing files owned by the root user. Many users work-around this limitation by starting Dolphin with root permissions, which is dangerous and broken. The goal of this meta-task is to track whatever is necessary to provide a Dolphin implementation that opens a nice Polkit authentication dialog whenever a root file/folder needs to be edited or created.
* Dolphin doesn't touch the filesystem, KIO does. KAuth support should land in `file` ioslave. T5070 investigates whether this is possible.
* Dolphin needs to remove all the writability checks that currently has. A root-owned file can be edited also by a non-root user if polkit says so.
