Remember that's just an extern point of view, my father's one. Who is  
clueless of smb, dav, ftp and friends, even if he use oftenly smb. He  
is going to use dav and even ssh as it just appear in his file  
manager with avahi/zeroconf. The anduilos icon is the Mac OS X ssh  
server on my iMac (named anduilos). User prefer "bersace's public  
file" instead of ssh, and other technical stuffs. That's just a fact.

I also appreciate info label for protocols and formats (odt, etc.),  
but i dislike the orange used for those label. Far too sharp. I also  
dislike the text in 16x16 icons. That's just annoying.
