This doesn't really answer the original question however, I think the
point is that you can get much of what you want using various utilities.
There isn't much out there like Alcohol 120% for linux just yet; K3B is as
close as it comes.
You can add functionality to Nautilus using scripts. The was discussed
on the list before. Put scripts into ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/ and
the appear on the menu when you right click a file, etc.

This one will mount an ISO.
First #modprobe loop, add loop modules to the list in /etc/modules so it
will load on boot, then create the /media/ISO directory. Create a file
call Mount ISO in ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/; make is executable "chmod
744 Mount ISO.
#!/bin/bash
#
for I in `echo $*`
do
   foo=`gksudo -u root -k -m "enter your password for root terminal
   access" /bin/echo "got r00t?"`sudo mount -o loop -t iso9660 $I /media/ISO
   done
done
exit0

This one will unmount the ISO
Put in in the same location, etc, but name it Umount ISO

#!/bin/bash
#
for I in `echo $*`
do
   foo=`gksudo -u root -k -m "enter your password for root terminal
   access" /bin/echo "got r00t?"`sudo umount $I
  done
done
exit0

Hope this helps somewhat.
