Nice to see discussion about that keybinding.
IMHO, we should finally agree on *one* keybinding. I don't have problems
with ctrl-shift-n, but ctrl-n is like already mentionned the default
keybinding for New Window in galeon.
If we decide to choose that one, it'd be much easier for people if
they're used to galeon. I don't know much about emacs since I don't use
it, but why should we care about emacs user? emacs is *not* a core GNOME
I also don't know much about medusa, since I never used it. It's just a
question when it'll be integrated in nautilus again (maybe even if it
will be ever again integrated).
