Users don't understand why they are not able to open files from remote
locations on non GNOME applications. In fact, I don't know about any
GNOME application that it's able to edit a remote file directly.

                gedit ssh://username myhost com/folder/file.txt

        works for me :)

        But It's true that some GNOME applications (included on the Desktop
release) don't handle remote files correctly (ie: they are not using

        So a good goal for GNOME 2.10 would be to make every application on
the Desktop support correctly (at least for reading) of remote files.

        This could be a good task for GNOME love:

                * Test every app in the Desktop to open a remote file using
                  diffrent protocols (basically with/without authentication is
                  the difference).
                * Make a list of appcliations+cases that should be fixed (bug
                  in bugzilla and a meta-bug)
                * Fix it!

* EOG:
                * opens gnome-vfs files without auth: YES
                * opens gnome-vfs files that need auth: NO
        Checking in bugzilla:
                * "Ohh there is already a bug!"
                * Apply the gnome_authentication_manager_init () patch

IIRC fille-roller would need lot of fopen/fread --> gnome_vfs_open/gnome_vfs_read,
maybe same for ggv/gpdf... etc...

        Any volunteers?
