Sorry, but i don't see why you take the idea apart just cause it
mentions some gnome app. It could use some plain X app for that as well,
oder something designed for xfce itself.

Who says it must be gnome libs? Still, there may be a few people around
who like typing an 80 char line for scp every time they aiming copy a
few files to a remote location... i'm not one of those. I agree
gnome-vfs is bad, as far as i have seen it's not something a
filemanager like thunar should build upon. But that doesn't stop anyone
from getting this included in thunar otherwise, does it? I think it
would be really nice if thunar could handle scp,sftp,ftp and maybe
webdav, guess would make life a step more easier.
