Please, go whine somewhere else. Network filesystems are on the TODO
list but you have to respect that Xfce is a hobby project. It's not
sponsored by companies and we're not getting payed to work on it. So
sometimes new features take time.

here, we're talking about voluntary software development. If you
*expect* things from us then you are wrong here.

talking about.
