Also depends on the intention of "open"; do you intend to open the
file for reading/writing/moving/deleting a file, or do you intend to
open the URI with whatever the default application is.

GIO was specifically written for this, and works cross-platform, but
is still fairly new and might be hard for application developers to
adopt (requires an up-to-date GLib and to effectively use it, an
up-to-date GTK+ as well). In the former case above, you need to make
sure the location is mounted, then just perform whatever GIO
operations you want from there on out. In the latter case where you
want to launch the URI, use gtk_show_uri().
