I'd really like to convert this to something less obtuse than ioctl().  

I want have gnome_vfs_file_control() take a GValue* instead of a
gpointer, and add a gnome_vfs_file_control_query() which returns a
GParamSpec* for the named control.  This will add a
GnomeVFSMethodFileControlQueryFunc to GnomeVFSMethod. 

I'll whip this up if nobody starts yelling.

 on the canvass of life, incompetence is my paintbrush.
