We probably want to integrate this on a deeper level than a plug-in for
nautilus. Perhaps this can be part of the greater scheme of "make
multisync suck much much less" instead of "throw everything into the
nautilus UI"? It seems like using multisync is the right thing to do in
this case. It *is* supposed to be a sync framework. We should start
moving to it, and cleaning it up at some point, so it can be the sync
framework for GNOME. It would make it much easier for one to sync things
like local rss feeds to their palm/wince/etc... device, or to a web
site, or something else even.
