So, Nautilus under the 2.3x system I am using shows the default Home and Desktop destinations for copy and move in the context menu. In Dolphin or Konq, when you choose copy or move, it offers you the entire sub-directory of your home folder as possible destinations. I know there are scripts to include any chosen folder but that opens an entirely new gui, where you click that folder and go from there. By the time I've done all that, I might as well just have hit F3 and taken care of it by drag and drop. Dolphin's context menu is much, much faster

Does anyone here know how to hack or alter the context menu to mimic Dolphin's destination folders on copy and move? I've plinked around the Nautilus Actions and other configuration tools but haven't found any way to do this.
