Here's a working link:

I like Javier's idea as well.  The arrows detract from the simplicity of 
the path, yet the feature could  be useful. A click delay could work, 
yet might not be intuitive or speedily used.

What is the current right-click action for path icons in the location 
bar? (There doesn't seem to be one for my version of the gtk chooser.) 
Left-click takes you to that folder, right-click could bring up the 
sub-dir list for that folder. Would be intuitive and useful.

I've been following this list for a few months, the work you're doing is 
great. Thanks!
