I mean.
1. it is not actually useful to run "every possible command line tool".
2. if it's useful to make _some_ extra functionality available then that
should be part of Nautilus.

Again, if only a small minority of people _need_ to write scripts then
there's no need for xenity to be in the platform. I certainly don't think it
makes sense to include xenity without an example script. And if that example
script is useful then it should not be a script, but should be part of
Nautilus instead.
