This would be a very handy utility for sharing full info on collections of files between friends. I could create a ZIP or RAR file which would be a browseable copy of the folder tree, except each of the filenames stored in it would be zero bytes in size, so my friends could immediately see all the files I have and plan what to copy from me the next time come over for a visit.

Anyone keen to help out on this one?

There's a similar utility I ran into called Snap2html
that creates an html snapshot of a folder tree rather than a zip.  It's a freeware.

You're welcome.  =]  The Empire rolls on.  World domination has been delayed a bit, but it's still on the TODO.   :P
