It isn't part of GNOME in the same way as libgnomeui or nautilus - it
can easily be used by packages that have no GNOME dependencies. It is
very useful that packages can use GnomeVFS with GTK+ without
gnomecanvas, libgnomeui and the rest of GNOME.

Sounds useful - I look forward to migrating my upstream projects to it
if it is similarly free of other GNOME dependencies.
