I'm unsure what we should do.
It's sort of depressing reading about all the problems and different
solutions. Long time ago, a simple fwrite() was enough to get data
written to the disk.
Then, GIO+GVfs arrived and problems began.

Without replying to each detail in the discussion, I see two ways:

- we get the GVfs people to fix their bugs and make the gvfs-fuse
backend work correctly

- we switch completely to GIO and depend on GLib 2.16/GTK 2.14 and
rewrite any file IO in Geany to do it like GTK wants us to do it

Sigh. So much work just to save files :(.
