Yuck. That's not going to be fun. I once tried to write Explorer shell
objects to make virtual folders and such, along the way I somehow
managed to completely trash explorer such that it'd not display the
listview control for the directory at all. That part of Windows is
really not documented at all well, and there are precious few examples.
Certainly doing stuff like ZipFolders is pretty evil.

Is there a compelling reason why people need to do this? I can't see why
you'd want to use Explorer to browse files unless it's truly
