I don't think that a previously discussed and ironed out more
sophisticated extension framework will be rejected. It would be nice to
have some more high-level APIs/hooks like Epiphany has. I've also read a
bug request today where a user requests terminal integration. We just
don't have to enable/ship it by default, and as long as the wrapper
layer is cleanly designed and doesn't cause new mess and design
headache, I think Alex and the rest of the Nautilus maintainer team is
also open to your ideas.

As a starting point, we might have to add support for multiple content
views to NautilusWindow, add get_active_contents_view API and maybe tune
the menu layout. I think this is really doable with the current Nautilus
architecture. :)
