In fact, _I_ am pretty much interested to have Nautilus running inside KDE.
I run native KDE 3.1 desktop, but for many (testing) reasons, may need to 
launch nautilus as separate application, without Nautilus owning my desktop.

So far, we don't have native Qt/KDE wrapper to librsvg2, and I use Nautilus to 
preview SVG files.
I am not sure how typical my usage pattenr is, but I consider launcing 
Nautilus side-by-side with Konq *a feature*, not a design mistake.

Doesn't GNOME have similiar minicli launcher?
I found this feature quite useful, and would like to have similiar feature in 
GNOME, too.  
I guess we can make this standard, no?..
