As mouse centric, i thought about the tab workflow, and one thing i still 
really miss is the middleclick -> open new tab feature. I dedicated middleclick 
to 'cd ..' because i need that more often too, with long folder lists i don't 
want to scoll to the top entry. But, intuitively, i try to open new tab with 
middleclick on a new folder, more often.

the solution is easy, there should be just another 'click' for .. and when i 
look at my mouse, there are the 'forward / backward' buttons. They trigger page 
forward / back in firefox, which is also possible with arrow left / right, just 
as in gnome-commander too, where the <arrow left> function finally does nothing 
else than 'cd ..'.  So, the same keys in gnome-commander, easy to memorize.

Again, as mouse centric, to be perfectly happy, it should be possible to assign 
this functions to the additional mouse buttons (which are quite common today, 
so i believe there must be a keycode standard.) 

However, i could not find this function in the key shortcuts and gcmd (gtk?) 
also doesn't seem to accept the extra button input. (I repeat, it works in 
firefox, so basically it's there.)
