By "GNOME" I presume you mean Nautilus?  There is one problem posed by
single click, be it in the file manager or other UI elements (like a
list).  Namely, how do you differentiate between selection and
activation?  For the file manager icon view, it's solvable - selection
must always be done by rubber banding, for example, or keyboard
controls.  For something like a list view (be it the file manager, my
inbox in evolution, etc.) how can you select an entry using the mouse
without activating/opening it?
