I find it interesting that most people who dislike the new spatial mode
also add a comment that they don't actually use Nautilus. For any change
there will always be some people who don't like it. Hopefully the people
who actually use Nautilus will like it better.

Anyway, the default behaviour is decided and won't change. Maybe at some
point before 2.6 we'll add a preference that lets you default to
navigational mode. However, we'd like to force people to use spatial
mode in order to flush out all bugs from it (and make some people notice
that its actually nice).
