Thank you, you put that much better than I did. I'd love to have the 
option on install of which file manager I want to use for the default, 
especially now that KDE4 is out (the recently plugged devices applet is 
useless to me because there's no way to change the file manager it uses 
(if you know how to do this, clue me in)). I doubt very much that we'll 
see that happening though, as one of the main points of Ubuntu is that 
"anyone can install it," and they're loathe to ask any more questions in 
the installer than are absolutely necessary.
