I think it might be useful to a tiny minority, but not much more than via
any other language binding. I haven't found anything widely-useful on here:
that isn't now part of Nautilus.

I'll try to stop ranting now. There's always the chance that there's lots of
GNOME 2.2 users who still feel the need to write Nautilus scripts.

That was intentional. I think that if Nautilus scripts are useful then they
shouldn't be scripts. I was trying to show some of the logical steps along
the way.
