add smooth transition to icons view

Bug Description

To make the folder paradigm more accessible and add a little spit-and-polish to the file browsing experience, we should have animations.

When opening a folder in icon view, the new folder should inflate, like shown in the attachment, from the folder icon. When going up in the folder structure, or using the sidebar, you would probably want to just fade between folders, to keep the smoothness going.

The same animations could probably be used for list/compact view, aswell, but make the most sense in icon view.

I like the idea but what is it that should be on the animated field. Or in other words what should the animation display before it changes the shape. I think we should keep it simple and just use the magnifying icon as implemented by the gnome-panel.

Let me know what you think.

I'd better have something like the animation in ZUI file browsers. Eagle Mode is the only working implementation of that thing AFAIK:

It will need some gtk hacks, I don't think we can get something good enough without modifying gtk itself. But it would be very interesting to do :)
