On the subject of patches, how many people understand the working of
nautilus well enough to even attempt it? I dug into the smb:// code for
gnome-vfs once, and it was very non-linear. What functions would need
work to do get wildcards/filtering to work?
If you've touched gnome-vfs internals I'd think you know enough since you
know how vfs enumeration of contents works and you are talking about a
filter over that (or in it..)
