Just to mention it: GVFS also handles SFTP and i'm planning to work on
the KIO/GVFS integration (KIO-GioBridge) in autumn:

* Integrating the GVFS "virtual" mounts into KFilePlaces (they are
listet in remote:/ at the moment)

* Work on KNetAttach and bookmarking server URLs

* Investigate how KDE could make use of the GVFS-FUSE bridge for
POSIX-only applications.

* Fix the incompatibility with the URIs some GVFS backends (like
archive:) use, and QUrl

* Look whether the KIO implementation could become more modular (to be
able to link GIO in-process)...

Of course that's more a long term project because it depends on the
success of the fd.o secret storage project as well...
