OK, I agree that it can be confusing to hide it in some places and show
it in some other places.

Though, i'd like to know what will happen if I open "Home" in spacial
nautilus and, then, double-click on "Desktop". Will it open "Desktop" in
a new window or will it hide all windows and show the desktop (the way
the "show desktop" applet does it) ? After all, isn't the desktop just
special directory opened at startup ?
