I was thinking along these lines, too. The toolbar editor could have a
three-way radio setting:
(1) location bar above directory view in its own bar
(2) location bar in toolbar
(3) location bar above directory view only when in split-view mode

(1) would be current behaviour.
(2) would result in what the Simplified Nautilus patch had. In split
view mode, the bar would display the location of the currently active
pane. It's surely not ideal to not see what location the inactive bar
represents, but obviously, that's what some users want.
(3) would be a compromise of (1) and (2), with the UI-glitch of
on-the-fly widget moving which is always a bit ugly.
