Re: [Nautilus-list] Nautilus-Mozilla proposal

Well in a perfect world you would be able to install nautilus the shell 
independent of any views. that way if you want to use nautilus as a file 
manager, well just install the file-manager component. You want a web 
browser, install the web component. All of sudden nautilus just becomes a 
shell for whatever the user wants to use it for. theoretically nautilus 
should be usable only as a web browser using the browsing component and not 
even need the file manager component. Basically total seperation of the 
components from the general ui.

but this is all in the sky right now..
