Of course I can still _write_ it. But let's say I did so and I wanted
other people to give it a try, they may need a version of the panel
without this dependency to actually _use_ it. I'm not against integra-
ting the panel and nautilus per se, I _am_ against doing it in such a
way that creates a lock-in.
