Opening a file through HTTP works with g_file_new_for_uri(), but yes,
write operations will fail.

I dunno how to do it "as usual" since I use Nautilus 2.22 for now that
AFAIK doesn't really support GIO, and I dunno how to mount a location
with GVFS without Nautilus… But yes, I understand the meaning :)

want to save it… and if I say yes, then ask me if I want to overwrite
the existing file. Well, not perfect (but I personally don't mind
about that since this feature helps me mostly for files modified by a

OK, I see. And yes, just take the time you need and let us (me?) know
when we can test your new efforts :)

Hey no, sorry :D
