Can Nautilus add CIFS mounts to filesystem?

OK, so I can mount a CIFS share through Nautilus with the "Connect to Server" action, and I can see those shares in the File Browser. However, those mounts don't show up in other standard filesystem dialogs such as Save As dialogs.

Is there any way to have Nautilus add these mounts to the filesystem, real or virtual, e.g. /net or /mnt?

Obviously I can also do this by mounting from cmd line, but I'm wondering if this is possible via Nautilus. This would be equivalent to the Map Network Drive functionality of Windows where the network share is assigned a drive letter.

The shares mounted through Nautilus will also displayed on programs that supports GNOME-VFS for example GNOME Text Editor.
