Trick I just discovered:

Shortcut to drag'n'drop open folder in terminal-
1. Create panel launcher for gnome-terminal. (Right click, add to panel, application, terminal.)
2. Right click, edit launcher properties.
3. Change "Command" line to "gnome-terminal --working-directory=%u"

Drag and drop folders from nautilus, or your desktop, onto the icon. (Even folder-names from Nautilus "location" bar!)

Terminal window will open in that directory.
