Well there are some important differences. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the
Gnome VFS is providing a browing facility for applications, and if you're not a
Gnome App, and there fore cannot make use of these libaries, you'll
have to use the
Non-GIO applications can still browse already mounted sources. Note that
in all of your demos, you're using a file manager to browse those
filesystems. Browsing the file system with a GIO-using file manager
(Thunar or nautilus) would work about the same.
Mine is completely based on the fuse module (and the automounter to
and does not depend on the desktop environment, it's just a level
lower: the filesystem.
Second, I'm working on inotify, still thinking how to make it work.
Does it already work with Gvfs?
Yes. See the g_file_monitor*() functions.
Futher locking, extended attributes, and seeking in afile is

We don't have locking support, but the rest works fine.
Finally mine lacks good integration with hal (udisk) for local
