	Yep - it's true Rodney's not quite right. I think the point is though
that it'd be nice to be able to implement Nautilus views that do all the
good stuff without having to depend on (/link to) libnautilus[whatever].

	Sure; there are several things that can be done however; It seems (to
me) that the Nautilus 'View' interface can be axed and more pleasingly
implemented with properties and verbs.

	It's quite possible that the Nautilus::ViewFrame thing could be
entirely replaced with a generic Listener interface and a few structs
(for embedding in Anys).

	That's how I'd re-factor it if I was sufficiently interested anyhow ;-)
