I aint really sure if what I'm about to say is obvious, but what if nautulus
supports to embed a bonobo component, what if we were to do some coding to add
support for this to the definition or brokering layer. I skip the user interface
because of functionality re-use. Keeps
coding new UI more easy.

I've been browsing bonobo some time ago, and I think hooking this quite simple,
but I do not know whether there's Python bindings for this, for bonobo and for
the gtk_plug widgets.  gtk_socket support would be nice, but isn't needed.
Problem might be if bonobo requiers gtk to operate.

Jeff: maybe you could explain the basic structure of the souces of the UI?
I didn't dare reading Python sources yet :)
