For what it is worth, I will throw my name onto the list that would enjoy this option.  To me honest, right now most of my file management is done in a term or mc.  I just haven't gotten used to the tree view in xffm.

Apparently this might be so, by using different treeview of the same
treemodel. It would involve quite some changes since all actions are
treeview --not treemodel-- dependent. Let's see how many other users
would like such an option before deciding.
