Nautilus uses bonobo for its plugins, which is the standard way to do
component software in gnome.  Bonobo uses .server files.  If you would
like to discuss the bonobo design decisions wrt server files, please
start a new thread on gnome-components-list.

Software installation on unix is generally not a matter of putting a .so
somewhere.  We're not going to design around that fact for one tiny bit
of the system
