RE: [Nautilus-list] Scripts: standard outputs??

Named pipes sounds like a better idea, and they would be truly useful -- 
I'm a script-maniac and would like to take advantage of this kind of 
functionality -- but all I could really think about as I read this was
the potential for misuse as output from scripts is piped into a buffer
in your filemanager for display purposes...

I can see the headlines now, "First buffer-overrun bash virus written as
Nautilus script".

Yes, I too have gotten into writing some nautilus oriented scripts.  It is
pretty fun.  Being able to output status info aboutthe script to the
nautilus status bar would be terrific.  I can't think off the top of my
head what I would want to send to the notes pane, but I imagine someone
else could.  

So, it seems to me that this might be something relatively easily done
using named pipes... I would be willing to research this a bit if someone
could give some opinions about if this would be the "nautilus" way of
handling things. I've been wanting an excuse to get familiar with tthe
nautilus sources for some time now...
