Other related troubles

3. You have to know that the uri exist

4. You have to know that the uri is "installed"

Personally I like a start-here page more like an "all available 
resources" view, where you can find and manage all non-file stuff
available for/from nautilus ('Available Fonts' , 'Installed Packages' ,
'Network Servers' , 'Desktop Preferences' , 'Applications'...).

But it's a little mess, cause you can use only the filename order :-( 
Something like MS Explorer's "titled" view can be appreciated for it.
