 > Anyway, can we come up with some sort of hybrid solution as the default
 setting, where windows aren't opened for each folder, but still use the
 foundation of spatial navigation?

 Reversing the OPT key usage would achive exactly that, I think. It's still
 spatial, but by default the parent window isn't left open, so new users
 aren't choked with lots of windows. Experienced users shouldn't be too
 inconvenienced, as they just have to get used to holding the OPT key
 additionally when they want to keep the parent window open.

 (It'd be nice to have double-right-click == OPT+double-left-click for
 mouse users.)
