Also now that we have working key navigation it is very nice to use the
single window mode: Alt-arrows work great:
* Alt-down opens (goes down into) a folder
* Alt-up backs up one level
* Alt-left goes back in history
* Alt-right goes forward in history.
This is also consistent with what Mozilla does, so it is all good.
I think this, along with the realization that I have too much stuff to
browse it with separate window for each folder, led me to use single
window mode :)
