Bug Description

GnomeVFS has been deprecated since GNOME 2.22 (Mar 2008):

http://library.gnome.org/misc/release-notes/2.22/#sect:gvfs-gio

All applications should be ported to use GIO:

Moreover, GnomeVFS uses HAL, which is also deprecated in favor of udev. Removing dependencies on GnomeVFS is necessary to remove HAL from the system, a goal shared by most distributions:

    Remove deprecated GNOME VFS

I'd say this ticket is solved (in git master, not yet in the stable 0.92.x series)?
