I actually prefer this, as I suspect that this would enable us to not
only ignore the ZMI and all other views, but in the eggy future not
include them, and nobody would notice. :-)

One of the parts of my "vision" of the future with Grok is that Grok
is low down in the hierarchy of the world, meaning that the folder
listing should be made with Grok, and if it isn't, well to heck with
it! :-)

One of the reason for this is that we do NOT want to end up, once
again, with several parallel ways of doing things, because that
requires a developer to know and understand all of them.
