  I agree.

  But there's also 'Open Location...'.  It should go into the Actions
too, IMHO, since it is not related in any way to any particular nautilus
window.  It only makes sense to have the accelerator (Ctrl-L) available,
but the menu item should go into the panel.

  This reminds me also of a bit of 'Connect To...' confusion.  AFAIK,
you can connect to any server with 'Open Location...'.  The only
difference between them is that 'Connect To...', besides opening the
URI, adds a shortcut to it in Computer/Desktop.  Thus, the name of this
action is not accurate.  It should be more like 'Add Network
Shortcut...'.  Unless I'm missing something...
