There's a difference between not using it at all vs using it
occasionally - there are various tasks I much prefer using GUI for, even
if I generally like doing things in CLI. For my average case closing the
irrelevant, intermediate-path windows ends up taking as much time (not
really measured, other than annoyance level/gut feeling) as doing the
"this is faster done in GUI" task takes done in a terminal. Also I've
plenty enough windows on my average workspace any given time already,
any "unrequested" ones aren't welcome.

Ok, I should (and will, out of pure interest) go and read the
nautilus/gnome list archives for the background reasons for this change.
At any rate I'll survive as long as there *is* a way to change back to
the old behavior, be it through preferences or by messing with
gconftool/gconf-editor.
