Personally I'm not a big fan of single click instead of double click,
since I'm already used to traditional methods. But I will try again here
whether this is indeed such a great thing.

Here, on my linux Xfce file manager, from what I see selecting is done
by holding the cursor above an item for a given instance of time. Nice
idea, but I think it could be troublesome in some cases. For instance,
if I would have a group of files selected, I could accidentally hold my
mouse cursor above another item for too long and loose the selection. I
wouldn't like that _very much_.

Meanwhile - I'll try this one-click setting for a while and see if it
really is as comfortable as you make it sound.
