I'm surprised they decide to put this in about a week before Hoary
official release. 

Changing the way Nautilus works is quite a radical change in my
opinion. And it should be done at the an earlier development stage of
next version... exposing it to the few who are comfortable with changes
such as Remy.

And when more and more people starts trying the new Array CD for 
Breezy.. the change will not come as much of a shock.
