What about a "present working directory" for Nautlius then?

When you do "save image as" in your web browser, it will default to ~/Downloads or even ~/Desktop. When you do "file/open" in the GIMP, it will default to the last directory you used...
This is something that winds me up on regular basis! But would you get to 90% of a solution by having open and save dialogs communicate with the file manger? That way if you had saved an image to
~/work/somerandomname a moment ago the GIMP would by default look for files in
~/work/somerandomname? rather than where you last worked with the GIMP?
Having said that the Journal idea sounds very cool and extremely worthwhile...
