Sorry if this question isn't related to this list discussion

ubuntu package gvfs-backends include several backends to different network
file systems (ftp, http, smb, ...)

Now we are mounting a Novell Netware file system through ncpfs utility but
a specif backend don't exist for NCP novell network file system. For this
reason, when use this ncpfs mounting point, Nautilus performance is
significantly (1/2) slow that a cp command in shell.

In OpenSUSE distro a backend called nvvfs is included and Nautilus vs cp
performance is very similar

I found source packages in

The question:

Is it possible to include nvvfs backend in ubuntu gvfs-backends package??
