OK right now having a multi rooted sidebar with an SMB share for
example, is a bad idea.  Until we have a file selector widget that
handles this it's just going to confuse new users.  Imagine it: "What
the.. how come I can see my file shares in Nautilus but when I try and
save a file from Gnumeric I don't see it..."

Having Naultilus, a file browser, the GNOME file browser to be precise,
be able to see file namespaces that our file selector can't is a really
bad idea.
