>>> To take the new structure into account (and to add a long time awaited feature), I modified nautilus to use a tree instead a simple list (finally!)
>>> And since I was in the mood, I moved groups to same list, taking the idea of the screenshot Stef sent the other day (lots of good ideas that we should adopt there), and then I removed the "groups" button... in functionality is good, but visually not so much... I accept ideas about :)

>>> Also, there are features in modified-nautilus that are missing. It would be good to have a list of them so I can implement it :)
