Okay, I wrote a script called vfstofs that prints the filesystem
path equivalent of a GNOME VFS URI. So "gimp `vfstofs -u
file:///home/user/foo.png`" works nicely. At this point I only
handle the file:// URI class. It would be nice to eventually
have a real tool that handles them all (maybe downloads a remote
URI locally temporarily or something, giving all applications
rudimentary access to GNOME's VFS).
Sounds good, except that you might consider the form
"vfstofs gimp [args]". That way you have a chance to clean up
temp files. Also I'd imagine it should be a real gnome vfs app,
not a script.
How should I share this work? Who would be interested in this?
Application maintainers? The nautilus maintainers? Perhaps the
maintainers of the gnome-icon-theme package? Or perhaps start a
package of my own?
Seems to me like it should be built into the app which will use it:
nautilus. Or perhaps if it just copied between two uris then call
it gnome-vfs-cp and add it to gnome-vfs.
