	I think the real problem is the loss of semantic information in the API
- the conclusion of discussing this on IRC was:

	* the is_local fix was necessary to stop nfs / afs wandering for
	  Trash, that killed big systems.

	* We need a new API so we can test for capabilities in gnome-vfs

	* We'll prototype this in eel_vfs_test_capabilities, which has a
	  g_file_test type semantic.

	* People are encouraged to replace is_local calls by expanding 
	  the eel_vfs_test_capabilities set where necessary and using 
	  that instead.

	I hope that's reasonably near to what we thought,
