This might be interesting news... Perhaps "GnomeVFS/D-BUS" could be 
recycled for D-VFS...

First of all, this is not a fork of GnomeVFS as in something we want to
be on it's own branch. This is a version of GnomeVFS 2.8.4 (currently)
that uses D-BUS for IPC rather than ORBit/Bonobo to communicate between
the client library and the VFS Daemon.

You can read more about it and find the source at:


It doesn't make much sense replacing ORBit in the mainstream GnomeVFS
before D-BUS makes 1.0 but I think it would make a nice change after that.

The people in GPE/Openembedded works fast and has added this version to
their build tree already.
