deja-dup should have gvfs-backends listed as (an optional) dependency

Bug #1003260 reported by Grigory Rechistov on 2012-05-23

deja-dup (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

deja-dup (or underlying duplicity) cannot backup/restore from a remote share (smb://, ssh://) if the package gvfs-backends is note installed - the error message is rather cryptic - "Address is not connectable". It's really unclear which package should be installed for the network backup to work - I had to find it by trial and error.

"gvfs-backends" should be at least listed as optional or suggested package for deja-dup or duplicity.
