OS X uses Shift+Ctrl+N for New Folder and Ctrl+N for New Window.
While my fingers aren't used to it yet (they're still used to
Ctrl+N for New Folder and open-something-if-you-want-a-new-window),
it seems more reasonable than overriding the usual meaning of a key
If "find" did The Right Thing, I might use it more often than New
Window. After all, with a new window, you're going to want to *go*
somewhere, aren't you? :) If it was as simple as Ctrl+F -> <type
path with tab completion> <enter>...
