You might not believe this, but I don't drink. I just don't like the

That's what I was thinking too. But try once the shell API
SHFileOperation() - it will work somehow, but not everything will work
as expected.

That's why I don't just want to jump in there and start changing code. I
first want to test the whole changes - especially for the shell
extension part. A crash in the main part isn't that bad, but if the
shell extension crashes, the whole desktop process goes down with it!
