Adam said he didn't mind restoring .. in the root directory. Here is
why I think .. there is useful. Please decide.
I have a habit that when I'm navigating through directories I often use
Home-Enter sequence many times to get to the root directory. If there
is .. in the root directory, then it stops me and I know I reached the
root directory. You know, if we got into something, it's not easy to
change this habit.
