Your proposal does not really differ from closing the old window when
a new one is launched. I don't think it has really any difference
where the window goes, as long as it disappears without user action.
So in effect, this will make the window behaviour match the browser
mode (window is replaced by new one).

Thus, this really was YATOSN.
That's my excuse anyway ;)

I suggest that someone creates a third branch (Raul is the origin of
this third mode thinking) of nautilus that merges the two ideas into
one, giving the "third model" a chance to prove itself and give
spatial nautilus the freedom to be what it is supposed to be.

Obviously, I won't be that someone :)
