I don't get it either. Why can't they just embed the view from Nautilus in there... It just makes sense. It would have file previews etc, and as such improve usability.

Or is it that they just CAN'T do that?

It's a matter of not having GTK+ depend on Nautilus. The GTK+ filechooser needs to function regardless of whether Nautilus is installed or not.

Well, that makes sense. Though, wouldn't it be possible to extract the view code from Nautilus and get it in GTK, instead of this duplication?

No, Trolltech is providing Java Bindings calles Qt Jambi.

The C# Bindings are (mostly) the work of Richard Dale and Arno Rhen.
