I just took a quick look at the screenshot, and my first impression is
that of confusion.  I see the Location entry indicating that the current
directory is "/", but on either side of the pane I see two different
directories and there is no apparent indication about which one is
actually "/", and what the other one is.

Can you explain the purpose of this feature in a little more detail,
because I don't understand yet how it is useful.  So far it just seems
potentially confusing, at least to me.
