By the way, have you tried key navigation, I use it all the time and it
is very handy in navigating places.

   * set "open in current window" by default
   * set "use home folder as desktop"

So that your files are *right there* on the desktop (one step less to
get into them) - also if you have unique enough names for the folders
you can just click the desktop to focus it, press "c" for "cvs" folder,
press enter to open it, press "g" for "gnome" and press enter to go
there etc..

Also if you use Metacity windowmanager, press Ctrl-Alt-D to hide all
windows from desktop temporarily to open folders.

The "type first few letters of filename to select a file" is very handy
for key navigation and makes the thing pretty effective in moving
