It seems that my brain made a habit of separating folders from files not (only) by icon, but by these twisties as well. I have tried to adapt JBT in my daily work in the past, but every time after several days I have found that file twisties just... i don't know... distract me, make navigating project structure a little harder to the point that I uninstall JBT.

I like the idea with expandable files, but IMHO this concept seems a little strange in the "file structure" (low-level, files are generally terminal nodes) considering that you add virtual "web resources" structure (high-level, anything can be a node) to the project tree.
