The reason I want to see the files is you may need to in order to 
identify which dir you want to select. IE I want to select the dir that 
contains the MCL application. In some contexts, the files are noise. In 
others they're vital information. Let the programmer choose by passing a 
bit to choose-directory-dialog

Is the "Current Directory" the one whose contents are being shown, or 
the one that is selected in the scrolling list view? This is the
crux of the ambiguity. I guess I have to play with the dialog to know 
whether or not I still think its ambiguous.

What does double-click on a dir in the scrolling list do,
open or return the double-clicked on dir?

Vincent Keunen <scosysv!keunen@milou.nrb.be> has some interesting
notions. I hope he gets to look at the dialog before it hets shipped
