Does libsoup actually handle FTP? Googling doesn't turn up any obvious
hits. That said I don't know if GVFS handles it either. With the
virt-manager test suite and libosinfo git master, I see:

$ ./setup.py test_urls --debug --force-libosinfo --only fedora-ftp
...
DEBUG    Error creating libosinfo tree object for
location=ftp://ftp.tu-chemnitz.de/pub/linux/fedora/linux/releases/30/Server/x86_64/os/
: g-io-error-quark: Failed to load .treeinfo|treeinfo file: The
specified location is not mounted (16)
...

So it doesn't seem to work anyway. But with your patch series it hangs
until it hits a two minute socket timeout. Which makes me wonder if
libsoup is trying to talk http to an ftp URL.

FWIW I don't think that should be an argument for keeping a gvfs
dependency. It's getting hard to even find public ftp mirrors these days
