It's an oversight. I've fixed this (and some other minor nuisances) in
the repository.

Well, the tramp-gvfs-* functions are used temporarily. I've detected,
that their code fits into tramp-rclone.el, so I've applied. Later on,
when this has been stabilized, I will refactor the code, and move the
functions to tramp.el.

Although tramp-gvfs.el doesn't work under macOS, it should at least be
loaded w/o problems. The functions are applicable then, which is OK for
the moment. Pls tell me if it doesn't work this way.

You could do this, but I hope Emacs 26 and Tramp from the repo shall
work under macOS. I will try to remember being backward compatible. Pls
beat me if I forget.
