I don't understand.

Example: I want that all my file chooser dialogs show hidden files; I
know that this feature is driven by the 'show_hidden' properties of the
widget; I belive that this widget property can be changed as well as the
'has-secondary-backward-stepper' for GtkScrollbar, via gtkrc.

Where am I wrong? Why?

Heermmm... sorry, I was asking for a different feature. Try to edit

This is a feature that is useful for all applications, don't need any
vfs (except mount removable drives on demand), just add a visible
shortcut to all stuff under /mnt.

So, the starting question again.
The /desktop/gnome/interface/file_chooser_backend key value is
"gnome-vfs" but all file chooser dialogs still use the "gtk+". Why?

As user, IMHO this is a not so smart behavior. Are you really saying
that remote/virtual fs support should be maneged via filechooser backend
AND application ???

So, when GIMP will switch to GtkFileChooser, I will not have the
ability, for example, to save an image on a ftp server if gimp
developers don't set to false local_only property?

I'm not saying that local_only is a bad property, it can be great to
prevent users to access remote stuff, but I think that its default value
should be false and it should be true only if you want to deny remote
accesses (at application or whole desktop level).
