I do not understand why this change provokes any negative reactions. Right now, the Places panel has two items that both lead to the exact same location. This patch simply removes one of them by default, and adding it again if you want is a 10 second operation. No functionality is lost; / can still be accessed with a single click on an item in the Places panel by default. There will still be a "direct shortcut to the root directory".
