Re: Nautilus select file patch

Exactly, this (like my first patch) was something I fiddled with for
my own purposes and is more POC than anything else. I started poking
around the nautilus code, but there isn't much in terms of
documentation (it would be nice to just load eel or something and have
a function like eel_highlight_uri(URI)) Just thinking out loud.

The other possibility I considered was something with nautilus
bookmarks, or using the custom canvas that the NAUTILUS_SEARCH2 branch

End all, we just need them to be nice and help us out.....
