Well, well. This brings a question about the traditional way of the
"desktop": Presentation and use.

Currently the desktop area (excluding panels and any open windows)
consists of icons and the wallpaper. I guess we can use this (presumably
less-visible) area better, and it could become more useful. Without
gdesklets, I'm not talking about that.

Your idea would be great, if the desktop was presented in a tabbed
fashion, selectively displaying a few of the default folders.
