But I suppose that code lives in an Explorer plugin or something like

I can think of two ways of making something like this possible with
- move the file operations code in Nautilus into e.g. a dbus-driven
separate process, and have both your software and the default Nautilus
implementation implement that dbus interface
- augment the libnautilus-extension API with a way to intercept file
operation calls and outsource them to an external entity

That's why I was asking how you are able to do something like this on
Windows - to get an idea of how other platforms deal with these use
