The control-center already depends on gnome-vfs, why not put this scheme
into the control-center.

I think theres logic in gnome-core/panel/(menu|distribution).c for handling
the different distro menus too that should possibly be integrated.

These aren't on my Debian system. Are they RedHat specific or are they going
to be installed by GNOME packages? If they're RH specific then I would don't
mind them going into gnome-vfs so long as they're optional at compile-time.
If they're going to be part of GNOME then perhaps they should be installed by
the GNOME modules that actually install files there?

Sounds great.

Am I the only person who hates the word "Favourites" to mean bookmarks?

I feel that adding a gnome prefix makes them less useful, but I'm still wary
of polluting the URI namespace... Oh what the hell... ;-)
