Its very hard to find good ways to subdivide it in that sense. What I 
would like is for people to take active part in nautilus development in 
whatever way they like, and as we grow to trust (or distrust, depending on 
performance..) their work, reviewing patches and stuff from them means 
less work from the maintainers and they can in turn start looking at 
other peoples work.
