Make the "Open file..." dialog in mcedit have a gui similar to mc where the user can pick a file graphically, not by typing its entire path.

Currently, if you do File>>Open File... in mcedit then you get a dialog where you must type the full path of the file you want. This could be a little cumbersome. Can you make a dialog similar to mc where you can browse the filesystem and select a file?

I would go even further - every single path input dialog should have attached e.g. Tree widget to ease navigation if current selection is not appropriate. In copy/move/mkdir dialogs it might be usable when for example one has some files selected and doesn't want to change cwd of the panel; currently only tab-completion is available to help.
