Default FX Browser - nesting folders

OK, followed the instructions in the title heading of this forum, then did a search and only came up with this:
http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.p...r+nest+folders
which basically says you can't do it but it would be a good feature request.
I am semi-reluctant to make a request here because, being a relative n00b with Reaper I fear being ostracized/beaten by the forum Gods...but here goes:
Can we get this? Its a drag to have to scroll and search and scroll some more. If we could organize the folders (a la directory tree style) it would make life much easier.

Default FX Browser - Nesting folders and sub-folders

OK, just read the sticky on how to make a formal request....so here it is:

FX Browser - Nesting Folders



Request

The ability to nest folders from within the FX browser, create sub-folders. I'm not quite sure how many levels would be appropriate ... perhaps 4-5?

Benefit

Users would benefit from this addition by having better organizing methods. People who have an abundance of third party plugins would be able to categorize them, say like SYNTHS, GUITAR AMPS,SPECIAL FX, etc. and then have sub-classifications in each of those folders and on and on ad infinum ...or 5 sub-levels, whichever comes first.

Reason

As it is now, even though the FX browser has a lot of room and folders can be created within the FX browser, after time it becomes difficult to keep track and organize all FX that one might have. This would increase work flow as well as relieve the level of frustration reached upon not being able to find that 'certain' vst today only to stumble upon it next week after you've made do with a sub par replacement.

I my opinion only one level. Same in operation with media explorer. No more needed. No reason i guess...



examples:

Media Explorer:

basses
- folder
- folder2
- (database 1)
- (database 2)
favourite sounds
- folder
- folder2
- (database 1)
- (database 2)


VST/VSTI:


foldera
-folder 1
-folder 2


folderb
-folder 1
-folder 2

favourite comps
-folder 1
*reacomp
*js dynamics

-folder 2
*reaxcomp
*grancomp

my bass favourites
-folder 1
-folder 2

nothing more in level of deep.


JS section would be nice if displayed with folders as they in system.

JS
Comps
Limiters
Delays
etc.

Same as CHAIN section in media explorer would be nice if displayed in folders as in system.

CHAIN
Synths
MIX
etc.

Folders really good for organisation even js and chain.
