MS has enhanced BrowseForFolder with new features since
the Win32::GUI interface was developed. A particular
feature of interest to me is BIF_NEWDIOLOGSTYLE. MSDN
says:

BIF_NEWDIALOGSTYLE
Version 5.0. Use the new user interface. Setting this
flag provides
the user with a larger dialog box that can be resized.
The dialog box has several new capabilities including:
drag-and-drop capability within the dialog box,
reordering, shortcut menus, new folders, delete, and
other shortcut menu commands. To use this flag, you
must call OleInitialize or CoInitialize before calling
SHBrowseForFolder.

It would be nice if the BrowseForFolder feature in
Win32::GUI could be enhanced to support the latest
features of the underlying Windows capabilities.
