It would be nice to have a DeeModel implementation that was automagically populated (and updated) reflecting the contents of a designated directory. The columns of the model would be implicitly set by specifying a set of GIO file attributes to look up on the files in the directory.

Combined with a DeeTreeIndex this would make the Downloads section of the files lens trivial - and in fact if someone wanted to write a whole file browsing lens then that would be really easy as well.
