I think Seth said he was fooling with this? Maybe someone else.

Whoever was saying this told me that assuming the Bonobo 1/2 stuff is
interoperable (big if there I guess) you could in principle port a
view to GNOME 2 but not Nautilus...

I imagine you could probably get a tree view running in some
standalone test app, something good enough to just be sure it does
what you need. I don't know that it would be easy.

I agree that porting all of Nautilus at the moment would be a bad

That's why we want to be sure it's good enough - writing a widget that
really supports key navigation, input methods, themes, proper i18n
text display, uses user settings for keybindings, and all this fun
stuff is increasingly difficult, which puts the burden on GTK to
provide sufficient built-in functionality.
