The KDE wide option for single click itself is hard to work with and dolphin 
is trying hard to make is easy to work with. I think those who have opted for 
single click have chosen for it to be this way, difficult as it may be.

Why not embed dolphin's view in the filesystem view? Dolphins details view and 
column view provide selection when clicked on the icon and navigation when on 
the text.
