I have been extending your work to integrate shfldr_unixfs more with open file 
dialog. I am modifying open file dialog to accept typed in unix path and 
through validation checks as well
I have also fixed a bug in shfldr_unixfs and extend IPersistFolder to 

I know you are working on this area as well, so maybe we should coordinate our
effort so that there is no duplicate work.

I know there will be issues of Windows APIs won't accept unix file path.
But at this point, I just want to extend open file dialog optionally accept and 
return a unix file path.

The flag to turn unix path on or off can be in the registry, or simply a extended
flag that was passed in to OPENFILENAME struct.
