Talking about sliders and various btrfs bits in Nautilus, I would just
like to point out that there are other desktops and file managers to
consider. It should be possible to perform the same operations via GUI
in KDE or xfce.

Whether this means keeping stuff in a seperate, desktop agnostic,
application (like a system-config or Palimpset) or making changes to
Dolphin, etc as well I don't know.
