Hmm, will take some time ... you can check out the open libmvfs
branches (svn://anonymous:anonymous nibiru metux de/public/libmvfs/)
to see what's coming.

Primary libmvfs<->mcvfs bridging is already done in mc-9p branch
(svn://, all it takes now is adding 
a new vfs_class structure per libmvfs-supported fs :)
(perhaps we could invent some more automatic mapping someday ?)

No, I meant, mc shall be able to understand certain DE's shortcut files 
and do the right things. For example, if the shortcut points to some
ftp:// url, it just cd's to this url and let's ftpfs do the dirty work.
