I tend to use the command line most of the time but I occasionally use

useful to be able to see the images.

However, for me, nautilus has some very annoying defaults and I'm
wondering if they can be changed, i.e. :-

    Nautilus opens a new window for every directory, this rapidly gets
    annoying with deep hierarchies.  Is there an option to get
    Nautilus to open a new directory/folder in the *same* window?

 1) you can middle-click instead of left-click. It will close parent

Fair enough, I didn't know that.
where is that documented?

 2) you can use Nautilus in browser mode: Applications -> System tools
-> file browser or Right-click folder -> Browse; or nautilus --browser

Not exactly what the OP asked.

Personally (yes I know many will not agree) I find nautilus to be a glaring weak link in the GNOME desktop, irritating to use and hard to configure. Having said that, most of GNOME has very limited config options unless you use gconf*. (Which is for the most part undocumented.)
