Re: Mega patch to make spatial nautilus rock!

Btw. regarding our discussion of spatial vs open in same window. Would it make sense to have an option to open a new window and close the current for paths below a certain depth and open in same window for deeper nested folders? So we could combine the spatial mode for shallow paths with the hybrid mode that is indeed better suited for deep structures. The length of the path could be decided like in the pathbar. So you get e.g. 4 levels below / and four levels below your home dir in spatial mode.

The problem with that is its inconsistent for new users (and probably
all users who dont know about that feature). We shouldn't dynamically
change mouse actions/behaviour based on folder depth - it should be up
to the user by using left or middle clicks to determine how to navigate
in any given situation.
Such a feature should of course not be set as default.

I would set the options to open a new window with left click. I would then set the middle click to open the new window and close the oold. This far this is the current standard. If I want to use open in same window for deep nested paths I have no mouse button left. Any idea how I can use both? I think the right mouse button is out of question and combining with Ctrl or some other key is probably too complicated.
