Re: A New GNOME Order

Gecko and GNOME-VFS (or the new GVFS) need to be integrated. All GVFS
transfers should be daemonized, IMO.

That way, long local transfers from disk to disk, or CD to disk, or NFS
to SFTP, or HTTP to disk, will be handled the same way. And this would
be teh sex.

There are some challenges here, however, in that (from what I can tell)
the design of GVFS doesn't lend itself to, i.e. POST requests. While I
agree that there should be some sort of API to just identify a file by
URI and read it or its metadata, some kind of protocol underneath should
be exposed to allow more complicated things, like POST requests in a web
