We could take a cue from WinXP here: when you bring up the file
properties dialog for a hard drive, a few buttons are included there
that launch scandisk (file system checker), defragmenter, etc.
In our case, when we open the properties dialog for a folder, nautilus
shows the total count of this folder. Near this place it could have a
button 'Detailed disk space analysis', which would launch baobab to scan
the selected folder.
