This looks great! Are you sure that a user interface for adding/removing
entries from this tree is necessary?

I'm sure that we could arrange for appropriate vfs modules to add themselves
to the list via their GConf schemas (or have Nautilus to it for them), and
it doesn't seem like a particularly useful thing for a user to interact with
or change. These things should just work! :-)

Not sure this is the best design - it's hard for a vfs module to add itself
to GConf via a schema this way. It's also stuck under Nautilus -> perhaps it
would make sense to have this list of human-grokkable vfs modules available
for the entire desktop? This gets a tiny bit tricky, 'cos it would have to
be done somewhere other than Nautilus, such as libgnome or whatever...



Great stuff!
