What if we map the unixfs extension on the desktop instead of on mycomputer? 
So if HKCR\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Current 
Version\Explorer\Desktop\Namespace\{UnixDosFolderCLSID} is present, the 
desktop folder would forward ParseDisplayName calls to UnixDosFolder instead 
of MyComputer.

We could de-activate the special case of enumerating all child's of MyComputer 
in the file dialogs iff unixfs is rooted at the desktop. 

This way we wouldn't have to introduce a second "MyUnixComputer" and the user 
could expand MyComputer, if he forgot where there C: drive is mapped. But he 
would'nt see the drives until he does so.
