The location bar falls into the "object oriented vs. navigation" debate
as well as the "novice vs. advanced" user debate. It can currently be
hidden and it is useful enough (nay, mandatory in a "navigation-based"
file manager) that at least having the option to see it should always be
there. What I could see doing is increasing the power of it by allowing
arbitrary shell globs for the CWD (yeah, yeah, frequently requested
feature and all that).
