On the other hand, having the galeon view will hopefully encourage both

My (limited) understanding of such things, esp with the naut-mozilla
incompatibilities, is that the api for mozilla was in a state of flux,
so each moz release required a new nautilus release with the minor
tweaks necessary to get things back in sync. However, with the nautilus
view as api, are things changing that much? I thought that things have
basically stabilized. Or am I missing something?
