Hmm, I don't really agree.  Some people use Ctrl+L for getting the full 
path of the current directory (for pasting into a terminal, for 
example).  It would have to be optional behaviour at least I think.

Perhaps just the ability to run a single arbitrary command in the 
present working thunar directory?  For example,
I'm browsing the directory "~/images" and I want to get to ~/music so I 
press '/' on the keyboard and get a textbox (in which I can type shell 
commands), and do
"cd ../music"
