The main problem with nautilus-media is that I don't have a clear idea
of where Nautilus is heading.  Alex and Dave gave me a quick runthrough
but they had just as many questions as I had about how it would work in
the non-bonobo-nautilus-world.  There was a wis

For my part this is quite demotivating :) Maybe they have thought about
it some more, or somebody else knows what would be a good future
approach for the audio view ?

As for other stuff in there, I wanted to write some bits in python,
because I envisioned n-m as a collection of nice little extensions to
nautilus, like "convert to (audio profile)" extensions and stuff like
that.  The property pages were part of that.  I should compare with the
ones that are now in totem - at the time when I did nautilus-media,
totem didn't have these.
