I'm not sure entirely, but Benny has talked about adding network share
browsing - adding mounting isn't hard, it's the browsing that most
users miss. I'm fairly certain that Benny would like this to be at

I infer by Benny's silence of late that he is on an Xfce break. We'll
have to wait till he returns to see the details.
