I wrapped a few functions quickly for Nat manually for an application he
is writing, and requires Gnome VFS.  The GNOME VFS and some of the
associated libraries (like chunks in the Gnome UI library) are hard to
bind automatically, those APIs were not designed with bindings in mind,
so my suggestion is to do a manual wrapping for those.
