Yes, that's the best way: Write down what you intend to implement
exactly on the Wiki or in Bugzilla. I will help in explorer, winefile
and ibrowser as far as possible. But my available time is limited.
Branching the code is possible, if you want to change explorer
completely. But I would prefer to maintain only one code base. The
already existing "lean-explorer" branch may be enough.  ;-)
