I'm very interested on this, as it would give us also for free a FUSE
interface. Why I haven't pursued it yet is because the API for
developing new gio backends is still private and our new backend would
then need to live inside the gvfs gnome module or as a patch in every
distro. Aside from having to periodically adapt to any API changes.

See http://mail.gnome.org/archives/gvfs-list/2008-May/msg00004.html

That said, such a backend would be very simple, for the journal in Sugar 0.84.
