I am very undecided on whether single-click or double click should be
the default. I think non-geeks usually expect double-click but I'm not
sure. Running from SVN, you can also set xffm to single click mode by
defining the environment variable XFFM_SINGLE_CLICK_NAVIGATION.

Soon the iconview and treeview should completely split, which will cut
down the required space for mapping shared library symbols and boost
response. This is almost done.
