I don't know how long it will take, but in the meantime Ubuntu could
ship the patch maintained by the Arch community:


It looks like this patch is kept up to date pretty well. There is a
similar patch for gtk3 to make the file chooser dialog have type-ahead.

It's the best of both worlds, since you can still tap ctrl-f to search.

Whilst it would be nice for the Nautilus devs to upstream the patch or
for there to be a dialog about what kind of patch they might accept (if
any), in the meantime distros can include the patch, there is little
downside since the patch is maintained and not bit rotting. Canonical
would not be committing themselves to maintaining it by including it.

Bug description:
  GNOME removed type-ahead find in Nautilus 3.6, not without


  Now when you type in a Nautilus window, Nautilus immediately performs
  a search in the current directory and all its subdirectories.  I
  personally find this annoying.  If I want to search, I'll click the
  search icon.  Often I'm looking at a long directory listing and simply
  want to jump to a certain point in it, and type-ahead find works great
  for that.

  Would Ubuntu consider patching type-ahead find back in?
