I was originally inspired by the old czech m602 file manager:

A bit more talky design was used in the DOS Navigator:

You can see the free space widget is on top in m602. I decided to put it
down for mc to have more space for the directory name since the bottom
frame of the panel is unused. It could be moved upwards though if more
people like it.
