	* code re-use of at least the following bits
		+ async architecture
		+ working tree view
		+ file/URI auto-completion [again async]
		+ working canvas emblem / icon rendering

	* GUI / interaction consistancy

	* Feature sharing (eg. filtering)

	* Oh and finally for performance, it's well worth considering 
	  the large icon cache that lives in the nautilus process, and
	  the cost of rendering an SVG icon/emblem.

	Of course we need a decent API as well; IMHO that's a separate issue.
