The tighter view does still have enough room for 10-15 letters and
even if that isn't enough, you just break the lines or go for
"myverylongfilen..." style names. Beside that, I am not saying that
the screenshot shows the perfect layout for the icons (its just a
quick mockup by doubling the number of icons in the window), just that
the current icon layout is by far to wide, making it extremly hard to
browse larger directories, since to much scrolling is needed.

I don't want Nautilus detailed listview, for larger directories it is
even more useless than the iconview, since the number of visible files
goes down to something like 10-15 there, icon view is still able to
show double as much icons, a proper smallicons view like in rox or
konq on the other side is able to display like 70-90 icons in the same
