Hey All,
What's wrong with midnight commander? It's an oldy but a goody. Two pane
file interface, has a boatload of features. Is it the "bloat" of these other
features that you're trying to avoid?

Personally, I don't use a file manager. A straight bash prompt with cd, ls,
tree etc is fine for day to day use.
Instead of the binary tree program, I found this bash-oneliner replacement:
find . -print | sed -e 's;[^/]*/;|____;g;s;____|; |;g'
It's about the same speed as the regular program and more suckless then a
dedicated binary.(IMO)
