I think it's a great idea. It's part of the work that bug 8517 is supposed
to represent.

There's no need to merge the libraries, by the way. The libgnomevfs-pthread
library can become a convenience library. It's just important that it not be
a shared library.

But we can merge the libraries if we think that's the right thing to do for
other reasons (clarity).
