Interesting! Well, I stand corrected!

Never! :)

Yeah, I guess you're right... and who are WE to argue with Kim! ;)

I just hope the time he spends on things like DirSpec, Release Current Dir, etc. doesn't get overshadowed by mouse functionality. I'm no programmer, so I could be wrong about this, but mouse ability in character-based applications always felt strange to me... especially when it's a windowed application. I tend to run into more lock-up errors and strange mice anomalies this way, so I'm hoping this won't be the case for Ztree - stability and strength (power features) are of great importance to me in Ztree. As long as mouse support doesn't interfere with those, I'll be a happy camper. :)
