Is it possible to have Nautilus scripts appear in the top level of Nautilus' contextual menu, rather than in a Scripts folder?

Possible if you use Nautilus-Action.You may define your own right-click context menu items with nautilus-actions Install NAME. There is no need to store scripts insde ~/.gnome2/scripts folder.Instead you can use the same script with Nautilus-Actions-Configuration Tool.

How to customize the context menu in Nautilus?

Since most of the nautilus-scripts are basically Shell-scripts or Python-scripts (or Perl scripts) it is easy to convert them to nautilus-action scripts.

You can install most useful scripts from this ppa: ppa:dr3mro/nautilus-actions-extra

Also you can fine many useful scripts here: Nautilus-action scripts
