Hide Toolbar Buttons in Nautilus 3.x

Are you as annoyed as I am about the superfluous screen real estate consumed by the toolbar buttons in Nautilus 3? Of course you are, that's why the oracle brought you here.

To remove them, modify /usr/share/nautilus/ui/nautilus-toolbar-ui.xml and comment out all the <toolitem> elements.

<ui>
<toolbar name="Toolbar">
    <!--<toolitem name="Back" action="Back"/>
    <toolitem name="Forward" action="Forward"/>
    <toolitem name="Search" action="Search"/>-->
</toolbar>
</ui>

    Any idea how to ADD buttons, e.g. 'up'? Adding doesn't work.
