Maybe the confusing thing is the two-mode file manager. We could simply
hide from the users the fact that we have a mutant file manager.

My idea is to call the browse mode File Manager. For the spatial mode
there is no need for a definition (to the user). It may be treated
simply as part of the desktop. The windows can be referenced as 'folder

This way, the user will know that if he/she wants to do complex stuff
with lots of files and folders, they should use the File Manager.

Is this sane?
