With the proper tradeoffs and infinite resources, few software problems are unsolvable.
Most issues are just tedious things, like dealing with path aliasing, or having to
setup/maintain fs-events / SCM callbacks for more than the root folder, but for things
like doing recursive expansion (option-clicking the triangle), something would clearly
have to be done here to guard against cycles and figure out when to break them, if found.
