Hi Mirek,

I started on these, and after some investigations there are points on
which I don't fully agree.

Well, that's a bug I need to fix.

I have almost finished implemented it.

If you check carefully the Gnome Documents application, you'll see that
the "Selection mode" button is there too... which makes sense: otherwise
nobody will think of right-click to select items.

To keep consistent with that idea, we may not want to show the check
boxes when hovering on items, but only in selection mode.

I'm also pretty annoyed by that pseudo-Macos look of the filtering
buttons... couldn't we have something less inspired from some
OS-specifics? Changing these buttons into something less
visually-imposing would also give some more importance to the Selection
Mode button.

Any quick though? Remember that you asked me to enable it as
non-experimental feature for 4.0 and we need to come up with something
definitive soon ;)
