Favorites in "copy to"

I'm not a fan of putting it in the window menu in the default standard spatial mode, as that doesn't fit that well semantically.

It makes sense to have in the context menu, and I could also see it in single window browsing mode, as well as maybe in the Desktop context menu, and the Deskbar, too.

OTOH one could also create a symbolic link from the favorites menu (IIRC ~/config/settings/Tracker/Go) to the Desktop, and would have a similar functionality - I think I would like that even better than having it in the Desktop context menu.

And "Go" can be named as a "Favorites".

I would rather this was implemented as a sidebar in navigator mode, similar to how GNOME and OS X do it. Folders can be added by simply dragging and dropping them to the sidebar. There could also be a devices section at the top with all mounted drives listed, and favourites listed in a section directly below.

Milestone: R1Unscheduled

Moving Tracker enhancement tickets out of R1 milestone -- Tracker's source code comes from BeOS R5, so it already has all the features it did on R5.
