Guys, we can't design around the terminal. Remember that we don't even
have filesystem paths in the UI. The terminal is another planet. A goal
of GNOME should be "you don't have to use the terminal for anything" and
the target audience of GNOME should be people who certainly don't want

When bash is willing to link to gconf and gnome-vfs, then we can talk
about caring about the terminal. Until then, trying to keep the user
model consistent between UI and terminal will be a giant boat anchor.
Screw it.
