No, all fuse mountpoints are handled by one mount, and that will be put
in somewhere like ~/.gvfs. However, you could make symlinks to make it
appear in other places.

We really need the mapping between GVFS location and fuse mount to be
"simple" to do in both directions (i.e. doing no blocking i/o).
