Tracker and file types modification
Well... I think the context menu should be diferente for each file type in Tracker. The justification is simple: if you use the file system for e-mail, contacts (im_kit) and so on, then you need to have customized menus for each file type, to do specific thinks with each object.
I would like to "reply this e-mail", without having to open the e-mail item and click reply... something like that.
I know, I know... this could lead to a Windows similarity and could use much more memory than acceptable, but it's already done at some point (for mp3 files for example, is loaded a specific menu, but it's in the window menu, not the context).
The file types interface could be the place where you register what kind of action you would like to do with each file. Nowadays, we got just some "relationship to the this kind of data" (can handle, cannot handle, ...)
Extending this idea, the application itself could countain what actions it can do with which type of data. I don't know what can be done to accomplish it (like change the executable structures or even create a kit for that, I really dunno), but the idea just don't go away.
Maybe somebody out there could think in something more appropriate.
