No, it was system-wide in the past already; this was removed in favor
of per-user registry. I don't know the rationale for the change, but I
imagine it's due to being able to install plugins in ~/ and to set the

We could set the line at usefulness in the default desktop. I think
it's a good goal to provide out of the box support for HTTP in GnomeVFS
if you look at the number of consumers (viewers launched by browsers to
handle remote http:// files, music players to play remote playlists or
web radios, applets pulling remote information, it's really aplenty).
I don't know of any app using GnomeVFS' DNS-SD support, but then I
don't use it either.
