Hey yeah I definitely like this idea.  Not sure if it would be easy to
implement, but being able to add/remove whatever you wanted (including
turning off the floppy/cdrom automatically appearing) would be great.
Along with selecting icons for them.

The simpler/uglier tree would not be as replacement but as an option.
The tree would just probably be more functional if it displayed more
vertically, and to do this it would have to be simpler looking (ala GMC
or something).  The aim wasn't uglyness =)
