wow, that's cool. I'm still not sure why there's not a "tunnel by default" option somewhere.

Now, of course, this doesn't really answer the question because the second two won't be found by the majority of users. But then
again, if the majority of users have to navigate to
/var/www/html/music starting from /, we've lost.


I think spatial mode makes two assumptions:

- Navigation can be kept shallow for non-expert users
- Expert users will make frequent use of Control-L

That's cool. I'm pleased to hear the rationale and it makes total sense to have defaults set for ultra novice users, since the actual truth is that an expert user will simply type "cp ~/music/file /var/www/html/music" instead. The only complaint is that it seems EASY to make it possible to change your default behavior and costs very little. But that's more of a philosophical question and doesn't need to be discussed on Fedora-Test-List.

Thanks for indulging me...
