Good idea.

This has to be config option-turnable.

I also wonder what prevents us from showing all files in the dialog
and not just the directories? We always can check whether supplied
path is a file or directory and strip off the file. Also we can make
only directories selectable, and now when we have support for colored
lists, we can show directories with different color and (optionally)
on top of the list.
