I disagree. I rarely need to list the directory as I know roughly what's in
it, but I very often want to type in the name; splitting it up would only
mean more keystrokes for me.

Am I right in thinking that taking ages to list full directories is a
particular problem with linux? Will the current changes to the VFS code in
2.1.x help?
