Those are good news, I was under the impression that they did drop it
(gvfs/gio) because the newer versions tend to use DeviceKit instead of
HAL for volume management, which would require "some" work on
On topic: I believe the folts at slacky.eu have packages for both
gigolo and gvfs, I'd look at their SlackBuilds and slack-required,
maybe they have had this issue already and found a way to fix it.
