Please, try to distance yourself from the perception that nautilus is just
a file manager. Nautilus is the thing that ties the GNOME desktop
together, which happens to provide some file managing capabilities too.
Indeed there are better alternatives for people who want a specialized app
for managing files.

Nope, that's not what I wrote. But the freedom you're talking about won't
be appreciated by more than a bunch of hardcore techies who want to save
on every byte of RAM they can, just because. I say, consider if this
freedom really is so important compared to the ideal of a desktop
environment where everything just works, and doesn't impose unnecessary
restrictions for obscure technical reasons.
