I'm not quite sure what resource editor your are talking about? Pls
give me a hint.

Important differences to just scanning directory structure are:

- ability to move each file of a directory to the desired location in
  my menu as opposed to its place in a given directory sort order.
- ability to administrate a label that is not necessarily the titel of
  the file (if it even has one)
- further on: the ability to include other types or ressources that
  are not reflexted in a file.

- optional, but very useful: the ability to integrate into a framework
  such as eclipse where an action in my outline allows my to open the
  relevant file in a useful (that is dtd-aware) editor.

  Although I admit that simply calling OS-mappings might do the trick
  as well.
