Never seen that myself. Wouldn't know where to start, honestly --
perhaps skipping the GUI would be a better option -- maybe something
like mc or one of the other terminal-based managers would be more what
you're looking for?
I mean, mc will do side-by-side of a pair of directories OOTB.
Hmmm. It may be GUI-enough for my purposes.
http://midnight-commander.org/ describes it as "GNU Midnight Commander
is a visual file manager...".
Section 3 - Mouse of http://midnight-commander.org/wiki/doc/faq hints
that it may perhaps have enough mouse functionality (enough qualifiers ;).
Also your phraseology joggled my thought process. Perhaps "file manager"
hints at much more power than I need. I only wish to _move_ files.
Which got me thinking that Tcl/Tk may be appropriate. I'll experiment
with mc first.
