That's funny... I just thought of that too!

So, great idea!

I vote for making the right arrow key pop-up the context menu when highlighting a file like approcket does. This feels very natural and easy. I would also love to be able to navigate up/down through folders  by using the left/right arrow keys.

you can navigate through folders with left+right already.
(ctrl or alt held will also do it)

this sounds reasonable to me.
