Yeah, that looks like a cool app and kind of sets a standard for what
the run dialog should do. I thought tab-completion for commands was
pretty cool at the time, but hey ... ;-)

Apart from improving the run dialog, my email was mainly about how cool
it would be to have an integrated bookmark system. I know that the need
for Nautilus bookmarks has been discussed a bunch of times. I just
wanted to 'speak up' and mention that it would be nice if a bookmark
system could be designed as a generic API, usable by any application.

If an easy to use bookmark API was available, a lot of the new run
dialog functionality would come for free. You wouldn't have to write
seperate code to load Nautilus, Epiphany, and whatever other bookmarks.
I think it would also be a generally useful feature to be able to
bookmark anything you want, in any application.
