Let's just ride the rollercoaster that we've created for a little while
longer. It's a bit early to decide if we've got the right solution to
this problem yet....With a bit of careful thought, while we wait for
2.2/2.4 etc, we may come on a better solution...But changing it in the
short term doesn't seem in anyone's best interest right now.

I'm not entirely sure if nautilus is the right solution here, no matter
how fast it has become.
