a thread by Alexander Larsson concerning a gnome-vfs overhaul.
"Recently there has been a lot of discussions about the gnome platform and the correct stacking order and quality of the modules. Gnome-vfs is a clear problem in this discussion. Having spent the last 4 years as the gnome-vfs maintainer, and even longer as the primary gnome-vfs user (in Nautilus) I'm well aware of the problems it has. I think that we've reached a point where the problems in the gnome-vfs architecture and its position in the stack are now ranking as one of the most problematic aspects of the gnome platform, especially considering the enhancements and quality improvements seen in other parts of the platform.
