Is it the "expandable" part that's bothering you (i.e., that seems
cluttered), or the "list view" part? It seems to me that if you 
never click any of the expand/collapse icons, you've just got an
ordinary list view... so I don't see how expandability would make
it worse (except, okay, for the addition of 16 or 24 pixels' worth
of space for the expand/collapse icon).

The column view does allow you to see more context than icon view,
I'll give it that.

I don't know; I think it could be made to fit. Heck, you could even
do it by embedding multiple Nautilus list views...
