I have continued doing some research work on the DVFS topic:
"DFVS-light" is no stand-alone VFS system. Moreover, it is an adapter
connecting to existing VFS-systems through a Unix socket. In addition it
could provide convenience functions to pop up File-Dialogs of the host
desktop environment, to download and upload entire files to and from
~/tmp, showing progress bars,...
The basic idea is to provide an interface to make more applications
"VFS-aware", without forcing them into the "dependency hell" of a
specific desktop environment (applications like GIMP, Mozilla, OO.org,...).
TVariant is a simple serialization and RPC protocol used in DVFS-light.
It is a lot simpler than DBUS. The C implementation has no dependencies
