what for are them? nautilus-scripts are useful custom functionality you can have on right clicking on a file icon, and from a .sh, .py, .pl, etc. script, you can perform useful tasks, like opening the same directory as root, calculating md5sum, open the terminal from the directory, changing chmod or chown, convert comicbooks to pdf, etc.

for example:
#!/bin/sh
# open terminal here - Chris Picton, Martin Enlund, Christophe Combelles - GPL
base="`echo $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_CURRENT_URI | cut -d'/' -f3- | sed 's/%20/ /g'`"
if [ -z "$NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_SELECTED_FILE_PATHS" ]; then
dir="$base"
else
while [ ! -z "$1" -a ! -d "$base/$1" ]; do shift; done
dir="$base/$1"
fi
gnome-terminal --working-directory="$dir"

or:
#!/bin/sh
# root-nautilus-here - Shane T. Mueller, Doug Nordwall, Keith "penguingurus.com" - GPL
foo=`gksudo -u root -k -m "enter your password for nautilus root access" /bin/echo "got r00t?"`
sudo nautilus --no-desktop $NAUTILUS_SCRIPT_CURRENT_URI

these scripts, for working, should be at '~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts'

Looking at the importance and usability that is gained from adding scripts to pcmanfm I'm not sure why this isn't considered more heavily. Not only would it mature pcmanfm to a more acceptable file manager it would also help a lot of people out there out that aren't interested in nautilus.

Seems strange to me.

Edit: I didn't realize that this was from from 2008, but I don't think it matters. As this is still a valid request even today in 2011 ( even moreso ) I don't think the age the matters.

+1.

I really miss the "nautilus image script". With one click I can rotate, resize, etc.
dir2ogg I think use natulus scripts also.
