There doesn't really need to be a setting, just remove Nautilus from
your session and add whichever file manager you want to session, save
the session, and be happy.  This can even all be done from the GUI,

Currently the only way to ensure you're choice file manager will be used all the time is to symlink it to "nautilus".  This is most definitely not user friendly.

Well, thankfully, GNOME offers users an integrated whole and not a
whacked up set of half-useful components to be mixed and matched at
will.  ;-)
