Looks beautiful! I've been looking for something like that for some time
now (simple, good-looking, fast file browser).
[Xftree was all that to some extent, but XFfm has grown to a bigger, and
thus slower, app].
Now if I may suggest you a little thing (which I find really useful in 
Konqueror for example): when drag'n dropping files / folders to another
window, a popup lets you choose what you want to do (copy, cut,
symlink). What do you think?
