Sad to hear. I thought to treat archives like regular folders was one
of the best
suggestions. I use midnight commander a lot and love this feature.

I don't understand this argument here. The situation is the same as
with a ftp-client, why would one integrate a ftp client(similar to) 
into nautilus if you can handle it in a external program like for
example gftp. Because it makes the whole interface simpler. You don't
have to learn two programs.

The same situation with a cd burning program. I love the integration
of the cd burning abilities of nautilus. I can imaging a similar
behaviour for archives, like an entry in the context menu of a
file/dir to create a new archive of it, similar to burn this iso

Please don't drop this idea.
