Description of problem:
Actually most of apps cannot directly open files form vfs folders. One
have to copy such file form e.g. sftp: share to local disk edit it and
then upload back (using Nautilus).
In KDE the files accesses via for example fish: protocol are
immediately copied to /tmp edited and automagically copied back to
original location. It is transparent to the apps if file lie on local
filesystem or on remote.
I thing gnome-vfs should give same functionality to be user friendly
it is gnoem-vfs should be transparent for ALL application.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open PDF from remote location under Nautilus (sftp://)
Actual Results: The PDF reader (xpdf, acroread, gv) cannot open file
from remote share,
one should first copy PDF file to local fs.
Expected Results: xpdf opens file without any warning
