on top of that I actually *want* a generic file manager - and thunar is
pretty much doing exactly that. I use gqview to manage my images
already, and xfmedia integrates nicely with the new .desktop enqueue
shortcut that I submitted in bugzilla, making thunar the perfect tool
for me to do the base work.
Type managers may be a nice idea, and they already exist! They need a
plain file manager to integrate with the rest of the system instead!
