I thought about re-writing Filer in C, but its just a thought. I have
something that works for me and a couple of others and I'm lazy.

If someone wants some file-manager code (C++) to mess with I can provide
QtFiler :) Has no real features, just a twin-panel view to browse files.

I would definitly look at XFC once there is a semi-official version
around to test - but I don't have any real ideas for a new C++ based
project. I am the _perl_dude ... ;)

Its too damn late. I should be in bed ...
