Again, I have to say - *WHY* is there a New Folder button in an Open
dialog? Why isn't anyone looking into dialogs dedicated to something
besides Opening files? The dialogs and features necessary to Select
Folders or Save Files should be different to reflect the fact they are
different operations and have different needs.
Seriously, if you're opening a file, what in the name of goodness do you
need a New Folder button for? ;-)
