Does is support webdav? ssl? is it threadsafe? Is it well tested on all
sorts of web/webdav servers?

The glib main loop integration and async mode is totally useless for
gnome-vfs integration, and is more likely to be in the way when working
with the gnome-vfs threaded asynchronous backend. Thats why I like the
Neon library for a gnome-vfs backend, it fits well API-wise.
