Please tell me one reason why anyone want to use gnome-vfs
in a normal unixish application?
The gnome-vfs API is IMHO so much overcomplicated that noone
in his right mind would want to touch it (unless there is a
very special requirement which 99.999% of the applications
do not have).

But blest in my name forever this stream that stanched my thirst!
