1) It offers an interface similar to gnome-vfs, so that I can read and
   write files over http, ftp, and sftp.  Other protocols, like ftps,
   would be nice.  I don't want just a socket library.

2) Works on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux.  Other Unices would be good
   (e.g. AIX, Solaris). It should be small enough that I can create a
   self contained executable and distribute that.  This is where
   gnome-vfs fails.

Right now, the leading contender is libcurl plus libssh, although I am
unsure about how portable libssh is.  libssh will need some additional
work anyway.
