I have often wanted a choose-directory-dialog. It should be part of the 
system. It should have an arg as to whether you see files or not in the 
scrolling list. In either case, you should not be able to selecta file. 

In such a dialog there is an ambiguity. Are you choosing the directory 
currently displayed, or the one which is highlighted?
I'm not sure whether I want both capabilities or just one [which one?].
In any case, making it crystal clear to the user which dir they are 
selecting is paramount.
