It turned out to be 580 lines plus a glade file, but I wrote such a
program.  It's really simple, doesn't take window frame pictures
correctly when you aren't running Nautilus, could use some tweaking, but
basically works.  Additionally it needs integrating with the rest of
GNOME.  I wasn't sure if it belonged with sawfish or the panel, so I
decided to let John and George fight over it.

There are screenshots available (taken with this app) at:

I don't want to touch this again, as I spent too much time on it as it
is (mostly wrestling with gnome-print oddness, fwiw).  If anyone else
wants to play with it more, they should feel free to do so -- so long as
they don't add too many more features.
