It should, though.

I guess what I'm asking is why a fileshare-specific dialog, instead of 
just a general URL-opener.

So the point of the dialog is a quick way to add entries to network:?

If you aren't using the menu panel, how do you add entries to
network:?  Should there be a prefs dialog, or a Nautilus menu item?

I'm not sure you are seeing what I mean, I'm saying, why isn't the
action a general "Open Location"

Also shouldn't network: be more pervasive in the UI, and if so
shouldn't we think through how that will work.

Don't we need a favorites/bookmarks feature? How does that fit in

Don't misunderstand, the feature seems like the right idea, but I'd
like to have a vision of the whole big picture.
