nuts and bolts under the hood - they are the same. they do the same things.
thus the selector == file manager under the hood for us. we have no display
mode right now that works with "traditional icon view". no dnd. etc. etc. - but
that will come. it is on the todo. the same filemanager behind the fileselector
will handle icons on the desktop and a traditional icon view - when i get to
putting that in, but priority right now is to make it work with list views for
file selectors and config dialogs. we had a lot of issues to clean up - and
they are now solved by fm2 (the shorthand name for the new filemanager back
