Bug Description

I love the exaile player and it is the only program that gives me hope that I can dismiss my Foobar200 wine combination once. But the only feature I really miss to do so is the file view tab:
It would be much better if it would look like the library tab. Or in other words: I think we need a tree view here, witch generally has the same functions as the library vies does. This would be a killer feature in my opinion.

Do you mean a tree view similar to how Windows Explorer shows it?

Sorry, I did not see windows explorer for a while. But I think, this is what I mean. A reference could be the tree view for files in foobar2000.

I'd love this as well, and would have made it a tree view if GtkTreeView wasn't such a huge pain to work with. Most complicated part would be that we have to lazy-load subdirectories (when the subtree is expanded). I wonder if there's a ready-made library for this....
