Re: writing plugins for nautilus

just some extra information: the thing that i would implement would be
best described as a "view" (thanks bocata;). the view should represent the
portage used in gentoo. that is, when the user hits "portage:" in the
address field, all the portages are displayed, not as folders, but
"something else" that you could right-click and view info, install,
upgrade and so on.
