I think the discussion came to a stand off over the toolbar and all
sorts of other UI change requests. IIRC the majotity wanted this in the
menus at least.

There was a patch that didn't quite satisfy all situations. Darin
pointed out some things that could be done and nothing was mentioned
after that I think.

Yes, but Nautilus preferences like the Apperance and the much talked
about Home folder as Desktop etc. are all still integrated into Nautilus
via the Edit/Preference. I think he means are those settings in the
control panel. That wouldn't make sense in my opinion. Unless it was
done in the same was as the Sawfish options. But even then....
