there is already a --browser switch. Maybe we can just make it order
dependent. So that "nautilus /dir1 /dir2 --browser /dir3 /dir4" opens
dir 1+2 spatial and dir 3+4 in browser.

I'm not sure what you mean by this? People generally use the gconf keys
because they never ever, over my dead body want to see a spatial window.
For people not setting the gconf key we should make it possible to open
both spatial and browser windows as they want.
