The current UI is real simple. You get a network: URI with nothing apart
from "Add a server" and (if you have gnome-vfs-extras installed) a link
to smb's network neighbourhood.

It serves as a bookmark keeper for your servers. Activate "Add a
server", there you enter a URI, and choose either "OK" (creates a
bookmark/link) or "Connect" (same as OK and connects to the URI in

You can add links to /usr/share/gnome/network, for vendors, or for other
gnome-vfs methods that have a network neighbourhood style (AppleTalk ?).

The network: URI's entry point is the applications menu, with the
"Network Servers" entry (that goes along the "Home folder" one).

Alex, how the stuff you're working on would fit in here ?
