My personal preference here would be to go with the HIG's Ctrl-D for Add
Bookmark, and either choose a different shortcut for Duplicate, or just
drop the Duplicate shortcut altogether (unless we know it's really
widely-used).  Whether or not we'd like to resurrect Nautilus as a web
browser going forward is kind of irrelevant I think; if there's a
function on the menu that has a standard shortcut, I believe we should
use that shortcut.

Problem with Ctrl+Home is that with the current Nautilus selection
model, it ought to move focus to the first item in the list/icon view
without selecting it (can't remember off-hand if it actually does this
or not, however).  Given our recent Up/Down/Back/Forward discussion, I
guess Alt+Home would perhaps be the best bet, if it doesn't clash with
anything else.
