Comment 4 for bug 749566

I have to contradict the assertion in comment #1 that "Users don't work with folders but with files". If, e.g., I currently work with gimp on a collage of graphics, or some other task involving a number of files (think a poster for UDS :D), I have a folder full of source graphics from a number of different sources (i.e. random filenames), and probably one or more gimp files.
At least my workflow demands having quick access to that folder to start working on that project again. Add some more source files into the folder. Identify the current gimp file (not necessarily by filename, could be e.g. by preview), open it. Drag/drop the new source files from the folder into gimp.
So, I disagree with the notion that easy access to folders is unnecessary.
