Wow. Thanks for pointing this out. I didn't build qtsystems module in my 
install and couldn't find anything about it.

Now that I built and tried it, it doesn't seem to work on Mac. 
allLogicalDrives() returns an empty list.

It does returns a list of mapped driver letters on Windows. But there 
doesn't seem to be a way to get a volume's URI/UNC like 
\\SERVER\ShareName\ ?
