libgnomevfs basically requires libgnomevfs-pthread anyway right
now. So I don't think this would make the situation any worse.

There's a bug filed for this in eazel bugzilla: 8517 -[API] kill back-end API

It was mentioned in the email I sent of gnome-vfs API issues and I had
it on the suggested list for 2.0.

By the way, I just noticed that there is a gnome-vfs product in GNOME
bugzilla as well, and it has a different set of bugs than the eazel
one, although there are some (separately filed) duplicates. This is
really confusing.

I'll try to sort out the dups once the eazel bugs get moved over.
