The nautilus crash is now fixed in yakkety. The only blockers are now Unity8's launching mechanism and general GTK bugs [1].

With that in mind you can use this hack to launch nautilus under Unity8 on yakkety:

  mkdir -- '--desktop_file_hint=nautilus'
  nautilus -w -- --desktop_file_hint=nautilus

It will refuse to resize and be of limited use right now, but it's a start.
