Default File Manager with Unity8 in future desktops

with the planned switch to unity8 in 14.10 it is most likely that we
will also start using the converged QML apps that are developed today. 

With all the complaints and unhappyness about Nautilus upstream ripping
out things like dual pane and other beloved and helpful features I
expect we can do better and I think this is the right time to:

a) collect requirements
b) file whishlist bugs 
c) if *you* want to contribute, get in contact with the developers

the new core apps are all 100% developed by the community under guidance
of the canonical design team.

the code for the filemanager can be found at

it is running on phone and tablets already and has a proper convergence
mode adapting to bigger screens.

lets get the discussion rolling ;)
