So Martin has been working on AbiWord being an embeddable Bonobo control, which is a pretty neat thing. IMO, *NIX is missing a lot of these sorts of pluggable components that so permeate the Win32 environment and make much VB-style programming so mind-numblingly easy to do. Obligatory screenshot here.
Unfortunately, I've caught a lot of flack for this in GnomeDesktop from an AC. It's too easy to hide behind an AC and flame away. This guy might have some really compelling arguments that the Nautilus folks would want to hear. I bet they'd be great arguments if the presentation was better. Until he unmasks himself and conducts himself appropriately in the correct forum, he'll be ignored by those who can help him.
Anonymity is as much a double-edged sword as it is not. It often lends a false sense of security, or (to paraphrase Def Leppard: Behind The Music) like when the short guy gets drunk - he gets a lot bigger in a hurry. I just wish they'd realize that. It'd make my life a whole lot more pleasant.
