IN there? No, this is definately not what I meant up there 8-) By 'have it
use gnome-vfs' I did not mean any kind of code changes to gnome-vfs but
merely making use of it (as in 'calling functions residing in the libary
called ...').

I was specificly talking about XML and URIs and nothing at all about
sending anything over any kind of transport, be it wire, socket or
something else, except for mentioning potential use of gnome-vfs.
