See my new blog for further info and screenshots:

I must say i don't understand this at all. Its basically the tree view
without any features, but with the bookmarks visible always and a couple
of button taking up a lot of space for functions that are easily
accessible in the menu already.

What is the usecase for this?

Hi Alex,
The full tree view requires a lot of screen estate and is very clumsy
for a side bar, requiring lots of scrolling in almost all my cases. The
default locations + bookmarks proved to be very efficient for me in the
file chooser.

I would also suggest replacing the URI bar with the button structure as
featured in the file dialog.

Yup thats on my todo list (although I was planning to have a new toolbar positioned to the right of the sidebar rather than replace the location bar) :)

hopefully if the places sidebar issue is resolved quickly then I can get this in time for 2.12 (feature freeze is end of next week)

Unfortunately the pathbar widget in GTK (see pathbar.c) contains references to private gtk stuff (like GTKFilesystem) so I need to weed those out before plugging it into Nautilus. It would be great if a future gtk pathbar widget did not contain these references and thus was usable in nautilus without any modifications (I guess I should file a bug for that).
