GnomeVFS for Perl

I've just finished a early version of a virtual file system module for Perl based on the gnome-vfs library ( part of the Gnome desktop project ). Gnome VFS enables the access of of most universal URIs through a single API eg. http, https, file, ftp etc.
The VFS::GnomeVFS module will eventually be a driver module for the in progress VFS module, but can be used on it's own. The module can still be used on it's own using a Perlish kind of interface - for example:
use VFS::Gnome;
vfsopen(*FH, ");
close FH;
VFS::Gnome can be found on CPAN at http://search.cpan.org/author/PIERS/.
