There is still a minor requirement for fuse. The init script to load the 
module and mount fuse control file systems is still required. For some 
reason, mounting the fuse based FS, at least on RHEL5, doesn't work 
unless the module is pre-loaded (it doesn't auto-load). And BTW, the 
patched fuse module (2.7.4glfs11) has an initscript that lacks the 
chkconfig line in it, which makes it not work properly on RHEL/FC 
distros (can't be used via ntsysv).
