Bug Description

File Transfers cannot be paused. I have no idea if this is possible or even exists on other OS's (other than Ubuntu), but it would be a great addition if pausing a file transfer would be possible.

The project CopyManager does was we're looking for, but it use old GnomeVFS so it needs to be updated ton GIO/gvfs.

the change there is not trivial and not really an hundredpapercut issue

Okay, as per Sebastien's comment I'll invalidate the hundredpapercuts task. Keep in mind of course this doesn't invalidate the nautilus task.

This is possible in BeOS. Their file operations dialog is similar to the nautilus' one but nicer.
Wish to see more useful borrowings from BeOS in Gnome.

It is even possible with KDE. Used it a lot there.
