Well, but no one can do that. I can't be forced. I won't use it. A lot
of people won't use it either. If I cared for nautilus enough, I'd make
a patch myself, but with all the other annoyances (MIME screwups,
ask-before-move file, etc), I'd be more compelled to just drop it. It
seems that the disk mounts lines on the context menu are gone, too. I
loved that, it was way better than freaking magicdev. It seems that all
the features that I use will be gone, replaced by behaviour that I don't
want. Every time I do an install I spend an ungodly amount of time
customizing nautilus. It used to be just a few changes to get it nice
and pretty, now it's a bunch to make it _usable_, and I still can't get
the damn thing to behave the way I _want_.

I can't see how this can possibly be, because the current version is
configurable.
