It would be nice if Thunar had something like io-slaves but I've seen the
argument here that it's a file manager not a web browser but I don't agree.
My files are everywhere and I hate having to mount up a share on every
computer just so I can see if something I'm looking for is there. I'm not
sure I care so much about windows or nfs sharing as much as I care for
fish:// or ssh://. Maybe use fuse to add this functionality to Thunar
without changing Thunars codebase that much. It doesn't really matter but I
have to keep nautilus around just for this purpose.
