Dropbox, file syncing service

Somebody recently recommended to me the dropbox file sharing service. It is really cool. You just see a local folder, you make changes to it and it is auto synced across multiple machines.

They provide an opensource plugin for nautilus, and a closed source deamon to actually talk to their servers. You install the opensource plugin, and then do a dropbox start -i, and the binary deamon is downloaded and installed. After that, it could not be simpler to use.

The package (even the opensource part) will never be part of fedora proper, and here's why. But yeah, it could be a useful inclusion in rpmfusion.
