OK, every admin loves midnight commander. It simply rocks. We could add
a new NautilusWindow subclass having two views and such, but it would
simply suck, because we don't have all these cool extra caps (quick view
etc.). Adding this just for the sake of an admin mode would definitly
bloat Nautilus. Also, most users IMHO will not get along with an MC
look&feel. We don't target geeks but grandmas, that's the truth.
What you want is simply another tool.

I haven't tried gnome-commander for a while. Last time I used it (around
2.0 or 2.2), it had many deprecated widgets. The solution to your
problem is to give the gnome-commander development momentum it lacks.

PS: I don't see any reason for having an mc GUI just like there is no
reason for having a vim GUI.
