I agree with that - DVFS should also work in a GUI-less environment -
but there might be a problem with secure authentication. If
authentication callbacks are directed to the client application like in
Gnome-VFS it would be easy: The CLI client application could just prompt
the user for the password. But if you want a secure solution with a
"trusted helper process to do all user interaction" (I think KIO does it
that way) this might be more complicated...
