Could you list some advantages that counter the "Requires three times as
many clicks as all other file pickers" problem?  Oh, and the "displays
information in tiny subwindows that don't relate to each other in obvious
ways" problem?  Or the "What the heck are the keyboard shortcuts?" problem? 
How about the "Let's hide features from the user to make it less likely
anyone will use them" problem?
