Uhm, that'd be tricky, atleast not for 1.0. But as you can see in
Brian's code, it's not really hard to provide a Thunar-like context menu
using a few lines of thunar-vfs code (and thunarx integration isn't hard
either, you just need to implement a simple interface and grab the list
of providers from the ThunarxProviderFactory).
