As people say, the *easiest* way is to use nautilus-actions, the problem
is that nautilus-actions is not yet[1] integrated in default nautilus so
you need nautilus-actions already installed on the system, after that,
your application just have to install a gconf schema to add your custom
menu entry. The *hard* way would be to write a nautilus-extension but
that is too much pain just for you want to achieve.

[1] It was proposed for 2.14 but it didn't got in, hopefully it'll be in
2.16, here's a link[2] from its discussion in ddl.
