I love the idea of having just one first-time druid for GNOME (the
KDE2.2 betas have a nice thing along these lines), but we should
probably decide on some sort of project-wide solution rather than
leaving it up to Red Hat or Ximian. I'm thinking of myself here, frankly
-- I use Debian, which uses the stock GNOME packages; they lack any sort
of functionality along these lines. If the druid is to be removed from
Nautilus, it would be my hope that it would only be when a suitable
GNOME-standard first-time one was in place.
