      Description

      sun.awt.shell.ShellFolder is used by file chooser view to provide a special file view hierarchy. But there is no public API to retrieve this file hierarchy, when someone needs to implement their own file chooser, or display the user-familiar file hierarchy for whatever reason. This is especially needed on Windows OS.

      Methods that are most needed are:
      ShellFolder.getShellFolder(File file)
      ShellFolder.getLinkLocation()
      ShellFolder.get("fileChooserComboBoxFolders") - which provides the interesting roots.
