I don't understand what integrating gnome-user-share with
nautilus-send-to means exactly, or how it would change gnome-user-share.

I know some people wanted to drop the gnome-user-share directory model
totally in favour of a "send file to this person/machine" model. But
that is totally blue-sky, since we have no real backend for that (apart
from email/im), and that models has issues of its own.

I doubt the situation will be different wrt gnome-user-share in gnome
2.12 (except that we might have a solution to the folder translation
issue), so I don't see what punting it for now gives us (unless its
especially due to the translation issue). Either its a model Gnome
thinks is right, or its not.
