GScrot should integrate with gvfs and bookmarks

Bug Description

Well, now that GScrot can upload to an ftp server, it would be nice if it could be integrated with gvfs and the user's location bookmarks for easier uploading.

However, when that is added, the upload dialog will be too cluttered for the normal user. Most people will be using public hosting, not ftp servers and whatnot. I think adding tabs would be good for this - and if the dialogs are made in Glade, I'll help out on that.

Oh, you hand-built the dialogs. Would you be willing to accept the Glade version then? It is much easier to work with and maintain (like the html/css abstraction of presentation and content).

Due to the fact that I've just started programming with gtk (switched from windows and .NET), the whole user interface is hand-made in GScrot.
Meanwhile I've experimented with glade as well. Of course, it is easier to maintain, but you are very flexible when everything is under your control and additionally there is no dependency on the libgtk2-gladexml-perl packages.

Nevertheless you can use glade to design the dialog and we will see if we use glade to integrate it or if i rebuild the dialog by hand.
Your help is very much appreciated, thanks.

Okay, I'll have a sample dialog ready then. I'll try to keep the names of
widgets and etc the same as much as possible.

Also, for gvfs - I think I'll make the user choose a filename to save to,
not a directory.

I thought about this and decided on the filename because saving to a
directory isn't common and can be confusing at first. Additionally, gscrot
gives a generic name to the file (which is fine), but when it's up on a
server, you most likely want to have a sensible name for it so you can tell
what the file is (most of the time, you don't get an image preview). Plus
it's better for SEO.

Nevermind the filename idea - it will not work with multiple files. So I went with the directory.

I've implemented a very puristic (but fully functional) approach. You can reopen this one if you would like to add something.
