Don't you think it would be useful if File > Properties would open the

I proposed it and came up with a patch last may, it was rejected .
Reading the thread, it looks like it wasn't so much rejected as that
there wasn't consensus about it. Am I wrong?
Calumn stated in a follow-up that a background context menu item that
allows display of the open folder's properties would be convenient.
Not just convenient, it is a real bug that this is currently impossible.
Hopefully we can get to a solution now.
quoting the rest of your mail for reference:
remember that I wanted to provide a patch for this as well, but a
prerequisite patch that unselects selected folders on clicking the
background was rejected as well. Don't remember details; anyhow,
nowadays Nautilus behaves how I suggested, so I could try to provide
another patch for the properties background thingie.
