i also like the spatial nautilus,but there is one problem which is hard
to solve: when i have to go down through deep directory hierarchies (and
no, i don't want to create symlinks), then it's very inconvenient to
close all those folders manually.

i know that i  can close all the parent folders, but sometimes it's not

so what i'd like to hear, is: how do you deal with deep hierarchies?
