[gedit-list] Filebrowser Pane Plugin - in development

Hi everyone,

First, thanks for the quality product. The new mdi is working out just
fine for me. I have been using it for quite awhile.

I'm working on a filebrowser pane plugin for gedit. This is my first
real Gtk project and my first real gnome contribution. I'm pretty far
along on it, and I thought I would let the list know. Just so you know
I'm serious, here's a screenshot:


My basic idea is to build a filebrowser pane widget then just connect
that widget to gedit with the plugin api. This way I can do my
development in a simple test app and drop it into the gedit framework
later. At one point I had it going in gedit with the plugin patch
provided with ctags, but I haven't touched that in awhile.

I'm currently formatting the code for public consumption, it should be
ready soon. I'd like some good feedback, as critical as possible since I
want to learn to do this right from the beginning. Any pointers now
would be appreciated. 

I do have a lot of questions too that I'm not sure where to have
answered. For example, I'm looking into integrating the "Places" menu
item just like it is in Nautilus, with the bookmarks, but I don't even
know where to begin. Getting the icons for the mimetypes gave me
headache, I ended up using the Galeon code as an example to work from.
I'm still not 100% sure I'm doing it right. 

Also, I'd be more than happy to write documentation on the plugin API
and a tutorial if someone else can provide me with the info (and correct
me when I'm wrong). Unfortunately, I don't know anything about python,
so I won't be much help there (although I should probably learn).

Anyway, this was just a heads-up and a hello, with more to follow.
