Not sure If I should open a new thread on this, as this is related to file display modes.

in the wishlist category, and relating to being able to select files with the rubber band box, I would like to see a view option offering a compact text listing of files, with just file names, in columns. As a programmer I view directories with hundreds and sometimes thousands of files in them, and I like to see as many as possible at a glance.

This is basically one of the file view modes used in, ahem, one of those other operating systems. i.e. "list view" on, dare I say it, Windows. It's pretty useful and I think it would be a good addition to nautilus.
