gnome-vfs has the dreaded <code class="function">gnome_vfs_xfer_uri_list()</code> function which
has tons of options and offers the equivalent of cp, mv, ln, mkdir
and rm at the same time.
GIO offers a much simpler I/O scheduler functionality instead, that
lets you schedule a function to be called in a separate thread, or
if threads are not available, as an idle in the mainloop.
See <a class="link" href="gio-GIOScheduler.html#g-io-scheduler-push-job" title="g_io_scheduler_push_jobĀ ()"><code class="function">g_io_scheduler_push_job()</code></a>.
