Gsoc: add google documents support to nautilus

During those 12 weeks of my Google summer of code, I have hacked mainly on 2 gnome project which are gvfs and libgdata.

Concerning libgdata, I added the google documents service and it's now in the master branch, it's functional even if there are still a few bugs.

As far as gvfs is concerned, I have an alpha version of the gdocs backend which isn't really usable for final users yet, but don't worry I am going to make it working well in the coming weeks! All the functions are implemented, I need to stabilize it and optimize it in order to hopefully get it merged in gvfs.

I have also worked a little bit on nautilus to support the new backend (almost nothing).

If you anyway want to give it a try (I think you should wait a few weeks more), you will need:

  6. Just to say that I am still working on it even if this week I had other work to do for univesity. I have vacation in 2 weeks so I will work on it for buf fixes and... Merging. I hope it can be integrated in gnome3.0, so I think in ubuntu 10.04!!

    @Michael: Yes you would have to do all my work again I think to port it to dophin since it's based on gnome technologies (GVFS and libgdata).

    Thanks for the comment ;)
