Yes I really don't understand why some form of Nautilus can't be made
into the Gnome file selector. OK it's not gtk+ only but so what. It
would integrate well with Gnome as that is what the normal user sees
when they use the Nautilus file manager any way. As a consistent view
into the filesystem would this make sense? Much code reuse as well and
as Nautilus grows and changes so does the file selector.
