i've been meaning to respond to your question for a while now, but its
slipped my mind. yes, i still think that nautilus should have "open
with other application" behave more like thunar. its much more
user-friendly to have recommended applications first.

the user primarily uses the "open with other application..." dialog to
reassign the default application, which is why it is very useful to
have recommended applications handy. this tends to be how i use
"open with other application" 99% of the time.
thank you for your consideration.
