Would it be possible to change this by using a query string on the URL
used to store and retrieve the metadata.  That is, if I'm viewing the
URL file:///mnt/cdrom, Nautilus currently looks for the metadata in the
file urlencode(file:///mnt/cdrom).  Perhaps for removable media Nautilus
could store and retrieve the metadata in the file


Of course, this would just be internal bookkeeping.  This way, you're
not really mucking around with the URL itself, you're just appending
some qualifying information to the filename used to do metadata.
