Pressing 'o' brings up the file browser here, but navigating away from the
current directory requires modifying the 'Filter', which ain't exactly
convenient in the modern sense.

“Let us again pretend that life is a solid substance, shaped like a globe,
which we turn about in our fingers. Let us pretend that we can make out a plain
and logical story, so that when one matter is despatched--love for instance--
we go on, in an orderly manner, to the next.” - Virginia Woolf, The Waves
