It may use some shell related features but there is nothing what makes it too
hard to fake a explorer like environment to this program.
It just means some folders are implemented as shell extensions. To host such
a extension you don't have to use the windows explorer. Any explorer-like
program should do the job - like the GXExplorer. Last time I tried (half year ago)
this program was nearly usable.
It would be possible to write a small standalone program to host such a
shell extension also.
