 If I'm not wrong you could do that from a gui with the following
trick[1] that is on the PoweUserTools page[2], so you don't need to edit

I like the feature but don't know if suitable to have it in a default
nautilus, I'm thinking that the feature, if implemented as in the
trick[1], could be done as a nautilus-extension or better as a bundled
(but not active) action of nautilus-actions, in case nautilus-actions
gets included in nautilus which seems it will happen.
