Given that the location bar is pretty hidden these days I think
extremely few people will try to use this feature. Maybe one in ten
thousand or so. Not adding this feature doesn't hurt these people much
(its a small feature and they can use the run dialog which does it

However, if we add this feature the primary feature of the location bar,
namely entering a directory, will be hurt, since the error dialogs and
behaviour when accidentally entering a file name or a non-existing
directory name will be confusing.
