But its a poor implementation, the gvfs-fuse one that is.  If you have
an app that doesn't understand the gvfs virtual filesystem (most
don't, even the gnome apps!). Then your only bet is to use .gvfs fuse
dir.  But its not easy to find for a normal user.  and it doesn't
automount the volumes.  So if your photo program has
~/.gvfs/Server/Photos as your photo dir and you launch it without
first mounting it via gnome then it fails or worse yet, removes the
index for all your photos.

What this person has implemented looks like it works and with any app.
