the trouble with nested menus is that are unusable as in, clicking in a menu 
is quite dificult and the hand tends to describe a curve instead of a rect 
line, in fact, if nested directory popup menus were good we'd use them 
instead of file open/save dialogs, I like the one menu thing 'cause you save 
one click, but viewing is not optimal, however I guess we could have an 
option like a listbox labeled "location bar left click (or keep pressing the 
mouse wutton or whatever tht's said in good english) action" with "show no 
folder menus", "show one level folder menus" and "show nested folder menus"
