Interface suggestion: gvfs

Hello! I maintain the deja-dup snap and was looking at confining it (rather than continuing as a classic snap).

One piece that is missing is the ability to talk to the org.gtk.vfs daemon. This means I can’t mount, read, or write to (for example) an sftp:// or webdav:// URL through gio. Or query gvfs to see which removable drives are connected.

It would be nice if there were an interface that allowed that.

Hi @mikix!

Just wanted to mention that this request was not ignored. gvfs is a bit problematic, but it is something we should look into and I’ve added it to the list of things to look at in the next couple batches of policy updates.
