I just have one question. Why is this the job of Nautilus? Isn't this the
job of the GNOME panel (easy access to applications)?

IMHO if people need the terminal (which, granted, most of the people I
know do), I think the GNOME Panel is the correct way of providing that
functionality. If people want faster access, I think a keyboard-shortcut
would be the correct way.
Since total newbies, probably shouldn't have to do anything in a terminal,
having it as part of the file-manager shell feels like crack.

A keyboard shortcut, I think, would satisfy both the "UNIX-user" and the
"don't care about UNIX, but like GNOME-user".
