Just because Nautilus is not a two-paned file manager doesn't mean that
Nautilus developer's are not listening to their users. Would you claim
that Nautilus developer's aren't listening to their users if they would
refuse to implement an Tetris clone to be played inside Nautilus?

If you want to have a two-paned file manager that is tightly intergrated
into GNOME, either find someone to write it for you or write it
yourself. I am sure that such a file manager would be a viable
alternative to Nautilus, but I also believe that it is out of scope of
Nautilus development.

Currently I see no indication that GNOME is dying.

Do you have any proof that "GNOME is not listening to their users",
except anecdotal evidence that sometimes features are rejected (often
for good reasons) or not implemented (often for lack of manpower)?
