Re: [PATCH] bug 145237: parent-folders button does not look like a button

I prompted Mike to send it to nautilus-list and release-team. :) I
personally think that:

1) it is a small change that oughtn't affect docs or screenshots
2) it makes the usage of an important and sort of undiscoverable
feature more clear for users
3) the patch is fairly unintrusive and so a low QA risk

So I urged that it be brought up again.
[Also, the patch has been rotting for several months, and that seemed
sucky too.]

Anyway, so, that's how I feel :)
