I like to use the mouse as little as possible, but I find Nautilus useful enough to use it when browsing for files. If I want to rename a file while in Nautilus I can hit the F2 key; is there a way I can chmod, too? I really hate going to properties and then permissions and then hitting the combo boxes one by one....

nautilus-actions package can do this. In the latest unstable release it supports assigning a keybinding to an action. Even without the keybinding, it saves a few clicks by having an action at the top level of the context menu.
