I am sorry, but this is just not elegant. Creates a command line?? Archaic!
It should be handled by the messaging protocol in Gnome! Personally, I don't
feel comfortable creating a huge command which includes 1689 of my 2423
files on my /usr/bin to do anything, e.g. ...
BeOS passes a list of internal filesystem references to the addon, and this
is much faster than passing filenames around via the command line. There
should be integration with the underneath system on Gnome as well.

Anyways, this is what I was trying to communicate all these days:
Please read the text there too.

And if all this technology is there currently on Nautilus why there is
nothing shipped by default (except the 4 file roller extensions which I
don't like anyway as they are on the top level menu and they don't look
enough as addons to push developers to write their own. I hope the command
line issue is fixed btw, a better solution should be found for that)

/me goes back to her nest now...
