Why'd I start making this?
This started out as my X-Mas 2004/Yule/New Year 2005 present for all the Nicotine users.
The purpose of the new filechooser is to make life easy for the zillions and zillions of nicotine users who use Windows and to 'prettify' stuff for the rest of us three Linux, OS X and BSD users.
With this fileselector Windows Nicotine users can finally pick directories from any drive within the GUI, rather than having to manually input them in the config file.
