The problem really boils down to this:
Writing a script in bash/perl/python/whatever that takes a bash variable in the form:
files = "smb://server/share/path1 smb://server/share/path2"
...and performs a simple find & replace to make it into:
files = "~/.gvfs/share\ on\ server/path1 ~/.gvfs/share\ on\ server/path2"
...in order for it to be passed to meld correctly.
This seems like it should be easy, but the solution escapes me (pun intended).
I am sure someone could come up with an awesome one-liner to solve this!
