Actually I had decided to change the name of this function to
InvokeFileAction to more accurately reflect that it is intended for the
use of acting upon *files*, as opposed to just anything that can be
referenced by a URI.
So the function is InvokeFileAction(string action_id, string uri)
I wasn't aware that GVFS was replacing URIs for referring to files. Are
we at the stage with GVFS where we are passing pseudo-FDs around yet?
