"basic" is too vague a notion. xmms supports only http, whereas gimp
might support http, ftp, and smb, or whatever. The only things that are well-defined
at this point are an explicit list of protocols, or "kde".  
"gvfs" would be well-defined, but we would need some code to find out which protocols
it supports (at runtime), which we don't have yet.
