Going from 'a half decently working' file manager to 'a less than half 
decently working' one wouldn't be a step forward. Even if the latter has 
the version number 3.6.

I'd go with the second option. This deep into the release there is 
probably no way to make 3.6 an option for 12.10.

For the future, if there are people to spare, then it would probably be 
the best to stick with Nautilus that is patched so it fits in with Unity 
for at least a couple of cycles.

Then some other solution will be needed. It appears that Gnome will be 
going in a completely different direction than Unity and maintaining 
things just to keep it integrated will become more and more of a pain.
