The basic headache of xffm and other fm's is the function to monitor
changes not caused by the fm. Having tabs implies two (or more) trees to
monitor instead of one. So while it's not a bad idea, it might be a bit
complicated to handle. OTH, I use the "bookmarks section to put folders
that are far away on the directory structure into a virtual "close"
position to solve the problem of the tree getting too long.
