In general, integration of such technologies is a big priority. But for
political reasons (Red Hat/Sun/Novell) we're in my opinion not yet ready
to integrate any C# code into GNOME. Also, pushing such specialized
technology down the stack isn't always the best choice.

We should for now rather try to provide UI hooks where we lack them to
enable 3rd parties to provide useful extensions. I think we're already
pretty good at this and iFolder seems to make extensive use of these
hooks. If Nautilus lackeded substantial integration technology, I'm
convinced that Novell guys would have complained in bugzilla [1].

If you see any particular weak point in our design, please share your
criticism with us so that we can fix it to improve your iFolder/Nautilus
