Is the sidebar components hard-coded into the nautilus source (as in,
does it do a bonobo-activation-query to find available sidebars), if
that can be done I think that's the best way. Just rip the stuff out of
nautilus and someone interested in maintaining it can maintain it in
it's own package.

I don't know if this is even possible (they seem pretty hard-coded since
you have buttons for enabling/disabling them in the preferences-dialog).
