Another use for gnome-vfs and our really cool importer
architecture is to automatically load hyperlinked documents into abiword.
It would work like this.
1. Pass URL to gnome-vfs. It checks it's valid, opens the file. We read
say 1 kbytes of data.
We then pass the data to our importer sniffers.
If the document is HTML or XHTML pass the call onto the gnome-browser.
Otherwise we open a new document window and load it off the internet (or
local file system) using a gnome-vfs supported protocol.
This way you can put hyper-linked documents together and place them
where ever you like.
Pretty cool eh?
I'll check into this tomorrow but don't hold 0.9.6 because of this.
