Sounds like what the Finder in OS X does when in the columns view.
Interesting idea and maybe something that should be explored for the file
browser part of the new nautilus, but it doesn't really fit the spatial
A simple way to handle manipulation of digital cameras would be to allow
them to be browsed as removable media from nautilus, but a right click
gives you an open in GThumb. This can already be done, so all thats need
is for nautilus and vfs to support the camera.
