I think it's about time for a new file selector.  The current one is not
very good I don't think.

If I go crazy enough using this one I may take a stab at rewriting it.
Anyone think of any good design ideas ?

I had a thought, and I don't know if it's a good idea or not, but you could
keep a history and/or bookmarks for the file selector, possibly saving state
in a user dotfile.

Is this unreasonable ?
