We can easily re-implement connect to server and make that be the
"volume" for the gvfs "mount". This means the icon will show up where
the mount is even when its not mounted, and clicking on it will allow
you to mount it.

However, as cosimo noticed, this somewhat overlaps with what bookmarks
can be used for too. If you put a bookmark to a network location you can
use that to easily mount the network mount too... Of course, then when
its mounted it will show up both as a mount and as a bookmark, so maybe
that is not ideal.
